The Departments of Earth & Environmental Sciences (EENS) and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEBI) collaborate to offer the interdisciplinary Environmental Science program, which provides students with broad exposure to environmental problems, as well as training in essential problem-solving skills. The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department offers the Environmental Science - Biology Track major.
Students completing the major should be able to enter environmental scientist positions in private industry, environmental consulting firms, and regulatory agencies. In addition, the major provides a strong science background for individuals seeking to practice environmental law. Students majoring in environmental science may elect to broaden their education in environmental policy by completing a second major in environmental studies in the School of Liberal Arts.
