Environmental Science Major

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.

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. You gain real-world knowledge through a curriculum with specialty courses taught by faculty currently leading work in these areas.
  2. All of our graduates started working in the field of their choice before graduation or soon after.
  3. The state-of-the-art McNeil Science and Technology Center gives you access to labs, equipment and resources at the forefront of science.
  4. Our proximity to varied habitats allows for extensive fieldwork and learning opportunities; all environmental science students get hands-on experience with instrumentation in data collection.
  5. You can participate in a summer internship as early as your second year.
  6. Lessen the total time and cost to complete a USciences MS or PhD—the integrated graduate credit program allows qualified undergraduates to take up to 15 additional credits of graduate coursework at no extra cost
