Any student in the school who decides to double-major may choose the second major from those offered by other faculties or schools at Rutgers University; however, only one bachelor's degree is conferred upon graduation. Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences may also minor in programs offered by other faculties and schools. They may also enroll in individual courses offered by other faculties and schools of the university.

Any potential student who does not wish to major in a curriculum that is on the list above should apply directly to the school at Rutgers that offers the desired major. Any student already enrolled in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, but who no longer wishes to major in a curriculum on the list above should consult with one of the school's deans in the Office of Academic Program in Martin Hall about initiating an application for a school-to-school transfer within Rutgers.

* Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences electing to major in one of these programs of study, offered by faculties of other Schools in Rutgers-New Brunswick, are required also to complete a minor or certificate program offered by the faculty of the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.
