Environmental Science (BS)
The environmental science major is for those students interested in a scientific perspective on current and future environmental issues. Students in the environmental science major will receive a rich education that can take them in many career directions: graduate studies, conservation biology, environmental scientific research, science and nature education, toxicology, environmental policy analysis from a scientific perspective, environmental consulting, and other careers in the areas of biological and life sciences. The major is grounded in the basics of life, physical sciences, and mathematics, and the curriculum provides opportunity for original research in environmental science. The major is strongly supported by the Glen Helen Ecology Institute through the College’s 1,000-acre nature preserve, where students study and conduct research.
