|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.
Students in this major will learn about the role of collective action, institutions, policy, and management approaches to address environmental and natural resource issues. A firm foundation in the natural sciences allows students to understand the complexities of environmental change and then focus on the social context and organization through which environmental problems are addressed.
