Environmental Science is a multidisciplinary field designed to examine environmental problems and find solutions to them. All students begin with a core sequence of courses that provides a solid background in science. Students are expected to complete four terms of biology, four terms of general chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, and two courses each in physics and atmospheric science. Generally beginning the pre-junior year, students choose from a variety of electives in botany, terrestrial, and aquatic ecology, biodiversity and conservation, paleontology, and environmental health and toxicology. Additionally, students may elect to take electives in environmental policy and economics.
