About: Environmental Science


Environmental Science is a field that crosses the boundaries of traditional disciplines, thus allowing a unique look at the relationship between humans and their environment from a variety of perspectives.

The program is grounded in rigorous biological, chemical, and physical sciences with further investigation of economic, political, regulatory, and social systems in their response to environmental challenges of the earth system.

Upper-class students may choose to focus more closely on either the chemical, biological, or environmental management aspects of the program, and must complete a junior and senior research project in environmental science.

At the end of their coursework, students will be able to analyze natural systems in relation to economic, policy, regulatory and social systems, commensurate with a diversity of environmental professional job descriptions.
