on the school's land-grant tradition, faculty members from the School
of Environmental and Biological Sciences pursue mission-based teaching,
research, and outreach that address problems faced by people throughout
the world, and challenge students to adopt the same mission-based
approach to their educational experience at Rutgers.
The school's undergraduate programs are designed to promote the multidisciplinary study of challenges facing society in areas that
cover the biological spectrum from organisms to ecosystems, with an
equal emphasis on the social and human dimensions of these challenges. Twenty-five
bachelor's degree programs, many with several areas of further
concentration, are available to the school's undergraduates.
teaching, research, and outreach are done in collaboration with faculty
members from various departments, centers, and institutes from
throughout the university and beyond. The school's students
not only have access to quality classroom experiences, but also have
the opportunity to participate with faculty in world-class research
projects funded by agencies such as the National Science Foundation,
the National Institutes of Health, and the United States Department of
Agriculture. They also have the opportunity to work with faculty
members throughout the state who are applying Rutgers' research to address local needs.
