Bachelor of Science (BS) in Environmental Science

What do I major in?

Incoming students are often unsure which major to pursue (especially difficult may be the decision to pursue the BA or BS degree). Therefore, we recommend that such students initially begin with the Biology BA degree program. Students can easily switch anytime during their first several semesters with the aid of their academic advisors.

If you love the outdoors, science and creating solutions, we hope you'll consider pursuing a BS degree in Environmental Sciences at UVM. If you've considered an education where classroom encounters with world-renowned environmental scientists are heightened by hands-on field and service-learning opportunities, then this major may offer your perfect college experience.

A common concern of students who are considering the environmental sciences major is that of knowing whether to pursue the program through the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR) or the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). Learn more about this program and the degree choices on the Environmental Sciences website.
