Legacy ENSP 2013-2017

The following tracks/concentrations are no longer offered. Beginning in Fall 2018, a new Geography and Environment BA major was instituted. These ENSP concentrations and tracts are legacy degree options and are provided here for continuing students already in the program. Prospective students should refer to the GEP degree offerings under GEP. The ENSP degree offered four study plans.
