This course of study will assist the student in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the Environmental Sciences. With increasing concerns of our relationship and dependency upon our environment, a degree in Environmental Science will be on the forefront of identifying environmental problems, developing solutions, and monitoring environmental conditions. A degree in Environmental Science prepares students by providing them with skills in many aspects of the Environmental Sciences. The main area of study will be natural resources including biological, geological and chemical aspects of environmental processes. The concerns we have with our environment will require personnel who are educated in more than one discipline, highly trained in technical skills, and aware of the political and social dimensions of environmental decisions.
