The Environmental Science program offers a practical, quantitative and technically based, cross-disciplinary program centered on biology, chemistry and geology. The program integrates classroom work with extensive field, lab and research experience and allows students opportunities to interact with working environmental professionals. All students take an identical core of Environmental Science courses complemented by a concentration in one of three natural science concentrations (Biology, Chemistry, Geology).

Motivated students have the opportunity to obtain a double major in both Environmental Science and their concentration area. Graduates leave Eastern with the opportunity for immediate employment in the environmental profession or for entry into graduate or professional school.

Students may declare an Environmental Science major with an advisor's consent. After acceptance, students must maintain a 2.50 GPA overall to remain in the program. To finish in four years, it is assumed that students have already successfully completed a pre-calculus course in mathematics.

As global warming, ocean depopulation, soil contamination, deforestation and other environmental problems grow more acute, there will be a growing need for professionals with a passion for protecting our world-and the knowledge to do it.</p> <p>The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports a 25% increase in jobs in environmental science within the next decade-a much faster growth outlook than the economy as a whole, driven by a growing population and increased demands on natural resources. The biggest employers include private-sector consulting firms as well as the Federal government.</p> <p>Environmental science is a diverse field-and it includes many careers that leverage scientific skills to the benefit of humanity and the earth. Here are just a few careers in environmental science that are stable, challenging and rewarding. Most of these careers require at least a Master's degree in environmental science, hydrology, or a related scientific subject-in many research positions, a Ph.D is often expected.</p> <h6><strong>For further information, contact an advisor or check out the following links to more careers:</strong></h6> <p><a href="http://www.ecojobs.com/">Environmental Career Opportunities (http://www.ecojobs.com/)</a><br /><a href="http://www.eco.org/">Environmental Jobs (http://www.eco.org/)</a><strong><br /></strong></p>
