Welcome to CSES

The mission of the Center for the Study of Environment and Society is to promote environmental education, awareness and engagement at Rice University and beyond.

The Center for the Study of Environment and Society (CSES) specializes in  offering interdisciplinary programs, courses, lectures, and events focused on environmental topics and issues directly impacting our society.  CSES also provides support for several Rice student environmental organizations , helping to improve coordination between the groups while also offering occasional seed-funding for new initiatives. Since 2001, Rice offers a double major in Environmental Sciences under the auspice of CSES, with courses representing five different Rice Schools.
