Concentration Offered

Environmental Science


Environmental problems require solutions that draw from many academic areas. The environmental science concentration provides broad training in all of the sciences as well as in relevant social sciences. Students learn modern techniques for identifying and resolving environmental problems. All students complete an internship which provides them with an opportunity to work with environmental science professionals and to make career contacts with local, state and federal government agencies, industry, or private consulting firms. Majors in the biological sciences, chemistry, geology and physics departments may choose the environmental science concentration; requirements for the concentration are listed with each of these departments.
