A concern for the environment, its resources, and its continuing sustainability is fundamental to our well-being as individuals and as members of the world community.  Environmental and Earth Sciences Department students examine a range of topics that arise from the interaction of humans with the environment.

The department offers two Bachelor of Science degree majors.  The Environmental Science major addresses the scientific dimensions of environmental challenges by requiring selection of an Emphasis Area.  The Environmental Studies major focuses on the human dimensions of environmental topics.  This major provides broadly integrated opportunities related to the governmental, sociologic al, business and policy aspects of environmental challenges.

The curriculum includes studies in earth system science, climate, agriculture, and natural resources.   Experiences in the classroom, laboratory, and field prepare graduates for careers and graduate study in science, business, government, law, and non-profit organizations.
