Description:The BSc in Environmental and Conservation Sciences program is for students interested in the natural world, its management, conservation and ecological perspectives. Graduates have a strong background in basic and applied sciences. They are able to evaluate effects of human land use on plant, soil, water, animal, and human resources and to assess and facilitate conservation, reclamation and remediation measures for natural, managed and damaged ecosystems. They are not only reactive but also agents for positive, responsible stewardship and change.

Graduates choosing this major develop skills in the economic analysis of environmental problems and the policy process associated with environmental issues. The interaction among economic, social, political, and legal elements of environmental problems is addressed. The Environmental Economics and Policy major builds on the Environmental and Conservation Sciences Core with a block of courses intended to provide the background for economic, social, and legal approaches to environmental problems and to build quantitative and analytical skills.
