Environmental Science - Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science

The environmental science major is a multidisciplinary program based on a strong general science curriculum and an environmental curriculum that focuses on environmental problems and solutions. Although administered by the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, a multidisciplinary advisory committee recommends curriculum and other changes to the program. Graduates are very competitive for careers in industry and government and have excellent preparation for graduate programs in a variety of fields. A grade of C- or better must be earned in the Basic Background and Core Requirements.
