The impact of people increasingly threatens the quality of our air, water, land, and food. Through interdisciplinary coursework and internships, you’ll learn innovative techniques to address some of the world’s most troubling environmental problems. Your paths include independent study or directed research, along with an environment-related summer internship or job before your senior year. This background prepares you to start working in the field or pursue further academic training.
