is an interdisciplinary environmental science program with EENS & EEBIO
The Departments of Earth & Environmental Sciences (EENS) and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEBIO) 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).
The major is not unlike the majors in EENS and EEBIO in that it requires a broad background in the natural sciences, as well as a core curriculum that familiarizes students with tools and methods.
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.
As our population grows, we will need environmental scientists to preserve water, give advice on land-use and building projects, study and design sites for waste disposal, control pollution, and repair damaged natural areas. Whatever your focus, you'll work to solve some of the most serious problems facing the world today.
