Environmental Sciences: Bachelor of Arts (BA); Bachelor of Science (BS)
The major and minor in environmental sciences reflect the college’s commitment to interdisciplinary learning and research on the earth and its processes across geologic time. With a choice of concentrations and coursework, students plot a course through a curriculum that addresses the challenges of environmental quality and sustainability. The faculty support this commitment in hands-on courses, laboratories, and fieldwork, with research conducted in the atmospheric sciences, biogeosciences, geochemistry, geology and geophysics, and water resources.
There is a global need for environmental scientists in both the private and public spheres. Upon graduation, majors may enter the technical workforce for corporations, governments, international agencies, or nonprofit organizations. If they plan to teach in higher education or conduct research, they may go on to advanced graduate study in the environmental sciences. Graduates also find training in the environmental sciences an asset in such fields as law, government, urban planning, and K–12 education.
