The B.S. degree in Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary degree between the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Department of Biology.  This degree serves as a pathway to a broad range of rewarding careers.  Environmental Science gives you an overview of how science affects the environment.  The degree provides a strong foundation in the natural sciences, such as biology, chemistry, geology, and ecology.  The degree then allows for a choice of upper division coursework which will allow the student to take classes which align to career goals.  Prior to graduation, students will complete a capstone project that addresses a specific environmental issue.
