The Environmental Studies program, established in 1998, is administered and housed in the Department of Geosciences. The program provides an innovative multidisciplinary approach for undergraduate students interested in the broad span of environmental topics while providing a strong foundation in either a B.A. degree in Environmental Studies or a B.S. degree in Environmental Science.
The program is designed to meet pressing needs in the workforce and the urban community, producing college graduates who are broadly educated in issues of the environment and who can communicate effectively. The core of the program consists of a unique blend of required courses supplemented by key electives dependent upon the particular interests and needs of students. Required courses span the fields of biological, physical, social sciences & the humanities.
