Introducing the New Dual Degree Program in Environment and Science Communication
Where students earn a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and a Master of Arts in Mass Communication
This program is a unique partnership between the School of Media and Journalism and the Curriculum for Environment and Ecology, with support from Honors Carolina, and is designed to be completed in five years.
This program might be for you if:
You’re fascinated by science, and people, too.
You’ll gain a broad understanding of the most critical environmental issues of our day, immersing yourself in subjects ranging from biology to economics and sociology. Through study in the field, you’ll have experiences like snorkeling with sea turtles, learning ecology in the Galapagos Islands, or studying firsthand how European countries are cutting carbon emissions.
You want to help others understand how the world works. Or you want to craft messages that inspire others to take action.
You’ll study with both top scientists and award-winning communicators. You’ll discover how to make science accessible and exciting to the public. And you’ll gain skills in public relations, social media marketing, photography, broadcast journalism, writing, or graphic design that will make you a stand-out employee.
You’re ready to get started.
This program is a fast track to careers at nonprofits, eco-conscious businesses, or media organizations. And though the program is rigorous, no GRE is required for admission.
