Environmental Studies

This major is designed for students who want to acquire a fundamental knowledge of the interactions between society and the natural environment from a Geosciences perspective. It includes an extensive suite of policy courses which enable students to understand public policy debates surrounding environmental issues. The increasing demands that population growth and affluence put on the natural resources and the Earth's environment require greater numbers of trained professionals and informed citizens. The Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies blends science and policy with an interdisciplinary understanding of Earth’s processes and policy aspects of human interactions with the environment. The degree is designed to educate students about our planet to enable them to be knowledgeable about the scientific, human-dimension and policy aspects of environmental issues facing our nation as they work in regulatory agencies, industry, and non-governmental organizations.
