The Environmental Science major is intended for students preparing for environmentally related professional careers. The course work is designed to enable students to learn how the physical, chemical and biological systems interact, and to identify, analyze, communicate and solve problems. Environmental scientists work in many fields including writing, consulting, resource management, regulation, conservation and education related to environmental issues. The skills of an environmental scientist may be in demand for jobs in industry, government and research.
There are two degree options depending on whether the major in Environmental Science is combined with a minor in Biology or with a minor in Chemistry.
