Curriculum & Requirements
Environmental Science Major with Environmental Biology Option, Bachelor of Science (BS)
Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field that combines physical, chemical and biological sciences with social, political and economic understanding needed to study the environment and address environmental problems. The Environmental Science program integrates classroom work in biology, chemistry, geology and social sciences (economics and planning) with extensive field, lab and research experience. All students take a core of Environmental Science courses complemented by a concentration in one of the three core sciences (biology, chemistry, and geology). Motivated students have the opportunity to obtain a double major in both Environmental Science and their concentration area. Graduates leave Eastern with the necessary professional and technical skills for employment in the environmental profession or entry into graduate or professional school.
