Nicholas School Undergraduate Programs

Connecting you to your environment. Preparing you for success.

The Nicholas School cooperates with the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences in awarding four undergraduate degrees: the AB in environmental science and policy and the BS in environmental sciences (both provide an optional opportunity to complete a concentration in Marine Sciences and Conservation), and the BA and BS in earth and ocean sciences. In addition, minors are offered in both environmental sciences and policy and earth and ocean sciences. Certificate programs are offered in energy and the environment and marine science and conservation leadership. Courses for the majors are taught by more than sixty Duke Professors in twenty cooperating departments and schools.

Environmental Science & Policy

Environmental Science & Policy

Our environmental majors have evolved from providing undergraduate Forestry instruction in 1932 to now combine Natural and Social Sciences knowledge in addressing pressing environmental challenges. Students can develop their path through rigorous depth of training in Natural Sciences (terrestrial and aquatic ecology, biological conservation, environmental health) or in Social Sciences (public policy, economics, law).
