The environmental studies curriculum is designed to give students the depth of intellectual and analytical skills along with the scholarly background necessary to understand and solve environmental problems. The program is interdisciplinary, drawing upon the resources of many related fields to provide the rigorous analysis necessary to understand environmental problems and formulate decisions that are environmentally sound.
The EVS program offers both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree options. The Bachelor of Arts degree allows students a variety of specialization courses in both social and natural sciences. The Bachelor of Science degree is intended to give intensive training in either the biological or physical sciences.
A student in environmental studies must complete all requirements for the major [(General Core)+(B.A. or B.S. Core)+(B.A. or B.S. Electives)] with an overall “C” (2.00) GPA to graduate.
Due to the continual addition of new courses, the chair of the Department of Environmental Studies may consider the substitution of certain courses for those officially listed under the B.A. or B.S. options.
