Environmental Science

B.S. Environmental Science

The purpose of this degree is to prepare students for graduate school or for direct entry into a career as an environmental scientist or environmental manager in industry, government, or NGOs. The curriculum comprises a core providing a foundation of science and methods courses -- introductory earth systems and environmental science, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics – as well as distributed electives in environmental science, environmental management and analytical methods, culminating in a capstone proseminar where students pursue a senior thesis or internship. A unique strength of this program compared to many environmental science programs is in geospatial analytical methods at the introductory and advanced levels.
