Our environmental science program is an interdisciplinary degree, incorporating studies such as physics, chemistry, biology and geology. Environmental solutions also frequently require mathematical expertise as well as specific knowledge of air, water and soil environments. That’s why this program is structured to prepare you with both a broad and deep knowledge as an environmental scientist. As an environmental science major, you will gain an understanding of contemporary issues facing society as a whole, as well as the historical, social, economic and political contexts that scientists face in dealing with environmental issues on local and global scales. The environmental science major is specifically tailored to produce graduates to succeed in a field that is continually changing with new challenges and solutions.

About Environmental Science
The environmental science program, like the broad field of environmental science, is by its very nature highly interdisciplinary. Although the College of Agriculture administers the program through the Department of Agronomy & Soils, the colleges of engineering and science and mathematics are equal partners in developing the curriculum, guiding student development and providing instruction.
