Majors and Minor
The Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences offers interdisciplinary programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science or a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies. Alternatively, students with any major may choose to minor in environmental studies.
These programs provide students with the intellectual foundation they will need in addressing crucial environmental challenges of the 21st century: human population growth, urban sprawl, deforestation, global climate change, waste disposal, the need for renewable energy, air and water pollution, and loss of biodiversity.
