Human life and society depend critically on environmental resources we all too often take for granted: air, water, soil and the mineral and organic resources of the earth. With increasing attention to global warming and climate change, there have been dramatically more scientific research and employment opportunities in this area.
The Environmental Science Program provides problem-based and inquiry learning experiences that will challenge you to think independently and apply the knowledge you gain.
