Integrated Environmental Science

IES student on boat

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 Sustainable Human and Environmental Systems that seeks to combine scientific and social information in order to make informed decisions regarding complex, relatively large-scale “wicked” environmental issues.
