Environmental Science

The Environmental Science curriculum is multidisciplinary and science and technology oriented.  Students learn about preserving, protecting, and remediating resources and the ecosystems that provide them. Our Environmental Science graduates are in great demand and primarily work in the environmental engineering and consulting fields where they have established an excellent reputation among employers.  Graduates may also find work in state, local, and federal regulatory agencies, industry, and non-profits.  Some students continue onto graduate school to pursue environmental research and professional school to pursue environmental law.
