Environmental Science B.S. Introduction 


What is Environmental Science?
Environmental science integrates biological, physical, and earth sciences to study the environment and find solutions to environmental problems. A degree in environmental science opens exciting prospects into a wide range of careers. Students can enter the work-force immediately, or pursue higher education at the master's or doctoral level to further explore topics of their interest. Environmental scientists use their knowledge of the natural sciences to protect the environment and human health. They may clean up polluted areas, advise policymakers, or work with industry to reduce waste. A number of career paths include: agriculture, conservation, education, sustainability, natural resource management, renewable energy, and urban planning and development.
