Welcome to the Department of Environmental Sciences.
We are one of the two academic departments within the LSU School of the Coast and Environment. We offer the only MS degree in Environmental Sciences in the State of Louisiana, and have graduated over 300 students since 1985. We also offer a PhD program in Environmental Sciences and a BS in Coastal Environmental Science, which is jointly hosted with the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences (DOCS). Our distinguished faculty comes from a variety of disciplines and is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service to the community. Our students also come from different backgrounds and regions around the world. We emphasize a holistic, integrative approach to interdisciplinary environmental research and education and value diversity.
Please take your time to browse our website to learn more about our Department. We put out some of the photos, all taken by our faculty and students, throughout the website. Hope you enjoy them and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions and comments.
