A major component of AU's Environmental Science Program is its interdisciplinary nature. As my research in wildlife and conservation biology has further developed into an expertise in wetland ecology, many of the classes and field experiences I had at AU have paid dividends. To fully understand wetland biology, environmental chemistry, hydrology, and geological forces must all be understood. Environmental Sciences brings these disciplines together.
