The environmental and ocean sciences major, offered by the Department of Environmental and Ocean Sciences, is intended for students interested in the natural world, with three distinct pathways that focus on marine ecology, environmental sciences or environmental studies. All pathways are designed with an interdisciplinary approach, either within the natural sciences (marine ecology and environmental science pathways) or across the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities (environmental studies pathway). The curriculum trains students to apply the scientific method to study critical environmental issues while promoting ethical judgment and behavior as it relates to the scientific process, environmental awareness, and the role humans play within the dynamic earth system.
