The Environmental Science major emphasizes biology with substantial coursework in computing sciences and mathematics, chemistry, and environmental policy to prepare students to solve modern environmental problems.
Environmental Science (ENVS) and Environmental Studies (EVST) are distinct, but related programs. Both programs start with an introductory course in environmental studies and end with a course in research methods and a professional capstone. Both are interdisciplinary programs that focus on building knowledge and skills in the Natural/Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts. However, while these content areas exist in both majors, the ENVS major prescribes significantly more natural science, physical science, and computational science content than does the EVST major.
More information about the Environmental Studies Program can be found in the Course Catalog.
