The Environmental Science Program (EnvS)
provides you with a comprehensive education in the hows and whys of environmental problems and ways of solving those problems. Doing so requires integration information from many relevant disciplines such as biology, chemistry, ecology, economics, engineering, geography, hydrology, soil science, philosophy, physics, political science, and sociology. This makes the Environmental Science program interdisciplinary. You can make a difference in tomorrow’s world by pursuing a degree in Environmental Science, a field with relevance today and into the future. Learn more about the Environmental Science Program
