At the Center for Environmental Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, we integrate environmental policy, science and technology into our academic and research programs. We know that successful environmental professionals must be able to bridge disciplines such as law, ecology, and economics. So that's the approach our classes and faculty take. We expose students to a wide range of disciplines and give them access to instructional laboratories, greenhouses, research tanks, and state-of-the-art labs. It’s all part of the interdisciplinary research and instruction we offer under VCU Life Sciences.
