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. Instructors 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.
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.
