Environmental Sciences Major
Environmental Science students work towards a broad understanding of the interactions that define the natural world while integrating the physical and biological sciences into their studies. The major is multidisciplinary, providing a firm foundation in the basic ecological principles, while allowing students the freedom to focus on specific areas such as aquatic ecology, geological sciences, entomology, and vertebrate zoology.
Environmental Sciences majors may also choose to specialize with a concentration in the Earth Sciences. The curriculum for this concentration, which is identical to the general Environmental Science curriculum over the first two years, includes a series of extremely popular Earth Science field trips and opens up a myriad of professional possibilities.
