Majors

These majors prepare you for careers in education; local, state and federal government; not for profit organizations; private-sector environmental consulting; and business. Both degrees also prepare you well for continuing education, 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.

B.S. Environmental Geosciences

The B.S. in Environmental Geosciences 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.
