    This paper examines the need for an interdisciplinary educational approach in environmental engineering and science, discusses the constituents of interdisciplinary environmental education, and addresses its advantages. A case of interdisciplinary environmental education within the Interfaculty Graduate Environmental Sciences Program at the American University of Beiurt is then presented. Specifically, this newly created program is introduced with a description of its structure, content, and performance in terms of mission accomplishment, student enrollment, and marketability of its graduates. Future curriculum development and constraints are also examined.
