The Environmental Programs majors prepare you for careers in education; local, state and federal government; not-for-profit organizations; private-sector environmental consulting; and business. Both program degrees also prepare you for continuing your education in diverse fields, such as law school, and master’s degrees in areas such as urban planning, water resources management, natural resource management, conservation, oceanography, geology, geography and atmospheric science.


Environmental Geoscience

The B.S. in Environmental Geoscience is an interdisciplinary geosciences degree with course content drawn from meteorology, geology, oceanography, and physical geography. The undergraduate major in Environmental Geosciences requires extensive preparation in science (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics) and math (Calculus and Statistics). This major prepares you for careers involving fieldwork and lab work. In the junior and senior year, Environmental Geosciences majors select a theme specialization from Biosphere, Climate Change, Coastal and Marine Environments, Human Impact on the Environment, or Water.

Environmental Studies

The B.S. in Environmental Studies (ENST) offers an extensive suite of policy courses which will enable you to understand the public policy debates surrounding environmental issues and ultimately participate in the formulation of policy. It integrates courses from the college’s four departments – Atmospheric Sciences, Geography, Geology and Geophysics, and Oceanography – to give you the solid foundation in Earth system sciences needed to effectively participate in and affect those debates. ENST majors will select an area of specialization from Urban Environments, Geographic Information Science and Technology, Environmental Regulation and Compliance, Occupational Health and Safety, or Global Environment.
