Welcome to the Department of Environmental Sciences at UPR Rio Piedras. Our aim is to apply an integrated, quantitative, and interdisciplinary focus to the study of natural and human systems and provide the student with the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully advance in an academic, industrial, or government setting. Our program encompasses disciplines from both the physical sciences (e.g., biology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, geology, and engineering) as well as the social sciences (e.g., public health, sociology, economics, geography, public policy, education, and planning).
