Semesters 7 and 8 - LSUHSC School of Public Health


Students who successfully complete 3 years in the LSU CCE program and the first year (30 credit hours) of the curriculum at LSUHSC School of Public Health Environmental Health Program will be awarded an undergraduate bachelor of sciences degree from LSU in Coastal Environmental Science.

 

For more information please contact the College of the Coast & Environment .

Semesters 9 and 10 - LSUHSC School of Public Health


Upon completion of the remaining 15 credit hours of the Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences curriculum at LSUHSC School of Public Health, the student will be awarded a Masters Degree in Public Health (MPH) from the LSUHSC School of Public Health.

 

For more information please contact the College of the Coast & Environment .

Coastal Environmental Science Electives


1 - Approved coastal environmental science electives (18 hours required for the environmental science and research area of concentration and 15 hours required for the applied coastal environmental science area of concentration) are environmental courses numbered 3000 and higher and must include at least one course from each of the four areas of emphasis:
 

2 - Students are required to perform undergraduate research (ENVS 3999 /OCS 3999 ) working with a faculty member in their area of expertise. Contact the undergraduate program advisor for information about possible mentors.

Additional Information


Additional courses numbered 3000 and higher outside of the coastal environmental science program may be substituted as approved CES electives with prior written approval from the CES program undergraduate advisor. Many departments at LSU offer courses with an environmental emphasis or closely related topic. Please check with your advisor and the General Catalog for options.

Undergraduate research (ENVS 3999  or OCS 3999 ) may also be taken as an approved coastal environmental science elective in the applied environmental science area of concentration. Undergraduate research requires an agreement between the student and a faculty member in the College of the Coast & Environment. Students may get credit in one of the areas of emphasis above for undergraduate research based on the faculty member’s area of expertise. Contact the undergraduate program advisor for information about possible mentors.

It should be noted that students successfully completing requirements in BIOL 2153 , BIOL 4087 , and CHEM 4150  (or ENVS 4101 ) might be eligible for undergraduate minors in both chemistry and biological sciences. See the College of Science  curriculum notes for specific requirements regarding minors.
Students majoring in coastal environmental sciences are not eligible to minor in either environmental sciences or in oceanography and coastal sciences.
