Major: Environmental Science
The Environmental Science major combines study in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics, exploring the relationships between these areas to acquire a greater understanding of how our environment works as a whole. Unlike the Environmental Engineering major, the Environmental Science major concentrates on general scientific principles and analysis, rather than design and application. Bottom line: it’s a whole lot of science.
This is a great time to get involved in environmental work. As concern for the environment increases, Environmental Science majors will be in increasing demand. Environmental Science majors work as policy writers and consultants, developers, conservationists, educators, and ecologists.
