By learning in an integrative environment that underscores the connectedness of these disciplines, students gain a better understanding of larger scientific concepts and they can view these concepts from multiple perspectives. Students pursuing this concentration will take a set of courses which focus more on environmental science than those pursuing a BS in biology. While the emphasis is on science, students will learn to approach environmental science from an interdisciplinary perspective, in part by studying environmental ethics and policy. Graduates are prepared for entry-level employment in the growing field of environmental science (which includes topics such as environmental consulting, environmental remediation, and natural resource management) and are prepared for graduate programs in environmental science or related disciplines.
