Environmental Science Program

The Departments of Earth & Environmental Sciences (EES)and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) collaborate to offer this interdisciplinary environmental science program, which provides students with broad exposure to environmental problems, as well as training in essential problem-solving skills, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Environmental Informatics (EI). 

Dr. Mike Blum and students involved with field workThe major is not unlike the majors in EES and EEB in that it requires a broad background in the natural sciences, as well as a core curriculum that familiarizes students with tools and methods.

The undergraduate program is preparatory to our 4+1 M.S. degree program in environmental science.

Students completing the terminal masters program should be able to enter environmental scientist positions in private industry, environmental consulting, and regulatory agencies. In addition, the program provides a strong science background for individuals seeking to practice environmental law.

Students majoring in environmental science may elect to broaden their background in environmental issues by completing a coordinate major in environmental studies in the School of Liberal Arts.
