2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog 
2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog [FINAL EDITION]

Environmental Science and Sustainability, BS

The environmental science and sustainability major addresses the growing need in our society for persons possessing both a broad scientific background and an understanding of environmental relationships. The curriculum is founded solidly on the traditional sciences of biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, and physics, yet provides considerable breadth of experience in environmental science areas. Required electives are taken in any of the sciences or in civil engineering so students can emphasize an area of particular interest. Since the major does not have a narrow focus, students are prepared for a wide range of jobs or graduate study.
