Environmental Science (BS)
Environmental Science students complete coursework that includes both a heavy dose of basic science requirements and courses spanning a variety of disciplines pertinent to understanding the context in which environmental challenges reside. This provides students with a solid interdisciplinary curriculum rooted in laboratory and field research and informed by the humanities and social sciences. Unlike other IES BS degrees (Conservation & Restoration, Food Systems/Sustainable Agriculture), students in the general BS program have the latitude to choose science electives that meet their particular needs/interests. Students have the option of completing a four-year program to earn a BS in Environmental Science, or to use electives during their senior year to take graduate business courses and transition into Loyola's MBA Program for a five-year dual-BS/MBA degree.
