Environmental Science Program

The program offers one major, Environmental Science, and two minors, Environmental Science and Environmental and Sustainability Studies. The Environmental Science major is a science major that provides a strong foundation in Biology, Chemistry and Physics while allowing students the opportunity to pursue their interest in the application of those (and many social science and humanities) fields to environmental issues. The Environmental Science minor is intended mainly for (but not limited to) students majoring in Biology, Chemistry and Physics who wish to expand their knowledge of Environmental Science. The Environmental and Sustainability Studies minor is designed for non-science majors and focuses on the application of environmental science in the Social Sciences, Humanities and Business disciplines.
