New Brunswick Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 School of Environmental and Biological Sciences Programs of Study Summary  


Graduation from the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences requires the successful completion of one of the curricula (major programs of study) listed below. Any student in the school who decides to double-major may choose the second major from those offered by other faculties or schools at Rutgers University; however, only one bachelor's degree is conferred upon graduation. Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences may also minor in programs offered by other faculties and schools. They may also enroll in individual courses offered by other faculties and schools of the university.  

Any potential student who does not wish to major in a curriculum that is on the list below should apply directly to the school at Rutgers that offers the desired major. Any student already enrolled in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, but who no longer wishes to major in a curriculum on the list below should consult with one of the school's deans in the Office of Academic Programs in Martin Hall about initiating an application for a school-to-school transfer within Rutgers (

The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences uses a system of adviser codes to aid in the advising and registration process. Adviser codes are indicated in the lists of faculty advisers for each curriculum.

The number preceding each title below indicates the curriculum code for the program.
