Come learn about our Environment and Science Communication dual-degree program, where students earn a bachelor's degree in environmental studies and a master's in mass communication in as little as five years at Carolina.

Hear about potential career paths from professionals who report on environmental issues and who engage in strategic communications concerning environmental issues.

Faculty from the Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology and the School of Media and Journalism will be on hand to explain how the program works, and current program students will share their experiences. 

Pizza will be provided.
