What is ENVS at Emory?


The Department of Environmental Sciences (ENVS) is comprised of faculty and students who are dedicated to teaching, research in service of addressing complex and dynamic interactions among people and their environment using both natural science and social science perspectives.

Through interdisciplinary perspectives, and by integrating research, teaching, and service, our goal is to advance knowledge and prepare the next generation of scholars, researchers, practitioners and citizens.

We strive to exert a significant positive impact on environmental facets of human health, ecosystem management, sustainable development, and biodiversity conservation, at local, regional and global scales.
