The faculty in the Department of Environmental Science and Studies are active researchers in a variety of areas. Our faculty are committed to providing research opportunities for our students. Areas of scholarship represented include:
Environmental Science and Studies is located in the Andrew J. McGowan building, a four-story LEED certified, state-of-the-art science facility that opened in 2009. This building features more than 30 labs for classroom instruction and research, lecture halls, study lounges, rooftop greenhouses and a green roof. The Department of Environmental Science and Studies houses the DePaul Center for Nature and Culture. Our faculty collaborate with members of the nearly 300 member Chicago Wilderness Biodiversity Consortium on research and educational projects.
Because our department has only an undergraduate program, we offer exceptional research opportunities for undergraduates. We also partner with other programs at DePaul, including the College of Education and the Driehaus College of Business to provide enhanced opportunities for our students.
