Environmental Science, BS

Director: Stefan Schnitzer, Ph.D.

Environmental Science integrates a fundamental understanding of the ecology of natural ecosystems and the processes by which humans influence, exploit, evaluate, conserve and restore their environment. The main goals for interdisciplinary major are to develop new knowledge in environmental science, educate students in the fundamental ecological and physical processes that govern the environment, train leaders who can identify and solve complex environmental problems and to educate students to help restore and sustain a healthy planet using an evidence-based approach.
