Environmental Sciences Major

The interdisciplinary Environmental Sciences major combines a natural science-based core curriculum with hands-on experience needed to identify, analyze, and solve environmental problems arising from human activity.

Teachers are active environmental research scientists

Classroom encounters with environmental scientists who are leaders in their field are heightened by hands-on field and service-learning opportunities.

Blending hands-on field and laboratory instruction with real-world environmental internship, research, and study abroad opportunities, students acquire the skill set needed to tackle complex environmental problems.

Where do environmental scientists work after graduation?

With the School's emphasis on such cutting-edge areas as ecological design, restoration of damaged ecosystems, and management of resilient ecosystems, Environmental Sciences graduates are equipped with the latest tools to steward our forests, waters, and landscapes.

Environmental scientists use their unique skillsets to identify problems and implement solutions that protect the environment. They may work in offices, laboratories, and out in the field. Connect with our Experiential Learning Office for more information on internships and careers.
