Earth and Environmental Sciences (BA)
The B.A. in Earth and Environmental Sciences is very similar to the B.S. degree but is designed for a major who wants to explore more of the human side of the environment. Typically, students who pursue the B.A. degree compliment their Earth and Environmental Sciences courses with environmental related courses in other departments like economics, political science, and sociology. Although a senior thesis experience is not required, we always encourage B.A. students to consider engaging in a research project that culminates in a thesis or presentation at a professional meeting.
