Department of
Integrated Environmental Science

Bethune-Cookman University seeks to provide education and research opportunities in both basic and applied interdisciplinary environmental science for undergraduate and graduate students while being a resource for the local community, the state, and the nation. Our courses are designed to meet the needs of students working toward graduate work in environmental science and/or careers in pre-professional environmental fields, resource management and field science, environmental policy, or as environmental practitioners.


Integrated Environmental Science is a subdiscipline of the larger field of Environmental Systems and Sustainability that seeks to combine scientific and social information in order to make informed decisions regarding complex, relatively large-scale environmental issues.
