The Environmental Science and Environmental Studies programs are designed to provide you with a broad knowledge base about the interactions between people and our environment. In your efforts to achieve a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies, you will complete coursework with an underlying emphasis in the social sciences. You will take a limited selection of natural science courses, but a broad base of human and natural history courses is required. The Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science is more centered on the natural sciences, and the related coursework reflects that.
There is an integrative philosophy woven throughout the Environmental Science and Environmental Studies programs which involves opportunities for internship in related environmental fields. If you are interested in environmental public policy and the decisions critical to the development of local, regional or national strategies that deal with environmental issues and concerns, you can work with a public or private environmental facility off-campus.
