The environmental science major prepares students for advanced studies or careers in the private and public sectors as environmental scientists. Students selecting this major take a rigorous series of lower-division courses in chemistry, physics, biology, earth system science, and mathematics as a foundation for advanced courses in environmental science. Students select upper-division courses from one of three options within the major -- the biology concentration, chemistry concentration, or the general concentration. This provides breadth of perspective for examining environmental issues, as well as significant depth in a traditional scientific discipline.
