Environmental Science (BS)
As one of the oldest in the nation, Ferrum's undergraduate Environmental Science program offers a modern introduction to the environmental sciences. This background enables students to deal with important environmental issues of the 21st century. Rather than a traditional biological approach to the environment, the program emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the field by drawing from biology, chemistry, statistics, earth sciences, economics, law, and the humanities. Environmental problems are approached from a holistic perspective.
