The Bachelor of Science Degree (BS) in Environmental Studies is designed to incorporate a strong foundation in the Natural Sciences with a good foundation in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
This program highlights experimental learning through field-based coursework, ecology expeditions (national and international) and environmental internships. Students graduating from this program generally seek professional positions in the areas of environmental analysis, natural resources/management and environmental education and find these opportunities in a wide range of governmental, non-profit and private organizations. Most of these jobs, requiring field clothes and good hiking boots, would prepare our graduates for work as environmental consultants, wildlife and fisheries ecologists/managers, conservation educators and so much more.
Course requirement: 20 courses/62 credits
