|Field of Study:||Environmental Science
|Description:||The Bachelor of Arts and Science in Climate and Environment* serves students who seek an interdisciplinary education with a unique strength in both Environment and Climate. The field of Environment focuses on the physical and chemical composition, nature, and the societal relationship we maintain with our physical setting, while the field of Climate focuses on how the Earth’s energy balance affects our environment.
This concentration will attract students who have an interest in the composition of the environment and the issues it currently faces. Students may consider how population growth, consumption, the growth of technology, and other factors affect the chemical and physical composition of our environment, as well as how we track these changes in our environment. Students can take courses that focus on resource management, chemical contaminants, earth processes, and other related topics.
