Program description

Environmental Science & Policy

Environmental problems must be solved using a combination of science and policy. Laws, history, policy and ethics are equally as important as understanding the chemistry and biology involved in these problems. A sustainable future is still taking shape, but with emerging technologies and the improvement of cleaner fuel sources, people have forged sustainable practices. As a student, you gain insight into most aspects of the human world, from science to technology, and the environment with hands-on learning that includes assisting the faculty with research projects and your independent projects. Coursework is challenging but flexible and allows you freedom in emphasizing an environmental area of interest. The curriculum is also well-suited as a preparatory degree if you are interested in pursuing a degree in the health sciences, including medicine, dentistry or veterinary science.

You'll ask questions like "How do we make trade-offs between the demands of society and the needs of nature?" then work toward finding solutions. The program is interdepartmental, with coursework ranging from biology and chemistry to physics, mathematics, statistics and engineering, and provides an expansive education.
