Students in the environmental studies program choose from one of two tracks: environmental science or environmental sustainability, with students in both tracks receiving essential basics in science, economics and politics. An integral part of the program includes hands-on laboratory and fieldwork, research and communication. The strength of the program also rests in having students gain experience with GIS, a technology skill that transfers well to many disciplines. Graduates have gone on to work in the lab, in the field and in management working for federal and state agencies, as well as the industry and non-profit agencies.
