What will I learn?

Students pursuing a BS in Environmental Science typically have interests in the environment, enjoy outdoor recreation, and appreciate science. The Environmental Science curriculum ensures all of our students have a solid foundation in physical and life sciences and environmental data collection and analysis. Our students will all have hands-on experiences using science to address environmental issues. The curriculum also allows some flexibility so students can tailor the upper-level electives to their own specific interests.

Environmental Science majors have the option to earn a concentration in Natural Resources and Ecosystem Conservation. This concentration follows a more narrowly focused curriculum for students that have specific interests in natural resources management.

Career Opportunities:

A BS in Environmental Science prepares students for a wide range of employment opportunities in the fields of natural resources management, environmental monitoring and assessment, and environmental education. Students are also prepared to continue their education in graduate schools in a variety of academic fields.
