The College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences provide students and faculty with a rich environment to tackle the multifaceted environmental crisis facing our planet. Arts & Sciences researchers—both students and faculty—take advantage of cutting-edge laboratories and interact with leading thinkers in the fields of geology, environmental science, biology, and other disciplines. Through collaborations with other schools at BU, our researchers generate new ideas and new solutions to environmental challenges.

Meanwhile, students, staff, and faculty all do their part to recycle, conserve paper and electricity, and further BU’s green mission.

Arts & Sciences students and faculty explore the full spectrum of environmental issues, from public policy to cutting-edge scientific research.
