|Description:||Environmental Science is the study of the relationships and interactions among organisms, their environment, and human activity. Understanding and solving the problems associated with how humans impact the environment, requires a multidisciplinary approach involving Biology, Chemistry, and Geology. Students are presented with actual environmental/ scientific issues and under the leadership of faculty, develop the expertise to apply their knowledge to problems. Curriculum is integrated with technology and field work, giving students the hands-on experience necessary to conduct individual research and acquire investigative and experimental skills. Environmental Science offers students the option to pursue graduate studies or secure employment in a variety of fields such as agriculture, fisheries, government labs and agencies, natural resources, policy and planning, resource conversation, and remediation.
A wide range of career opportunities in areas such as environmental consulting, agriculture, fisheries, government labs and agencies, natural resources, policy and planning, resource conservation, and remediation, are open to Environmental Science graduates.
