Environmental Studies (17)

The Environmental Science Department has three major objectives: (1) to provide a strong environmental science major within a liberal arts framework for those entering environment-related jobs in industry or the government or preparing for graduate work; (2) to provide cognate backgrounds in environmental science for science educators and others who may require this major; (3) to provide non-science majors with sufficient background to understand advances in technology, environmental implications of new laws and health advances.

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES Overview

The challenge of maintaining and creating a sustainable environment is one of the most pressing problems facing our society and world today. The Environmental Studies Program draws information, ideas and concepts from the natural sciences and social sciences to deal with complex and interdisciplinary environmental issues. The program is based upon the recognition that environmental and resource problems are not just biological, geological, economic, or political but a complex combination of many disciplines. Therefore, this program is structured as an interdisciplinary study of natural and social sciences to combine knowledge across traditional disciplinary lines. This information is essential for an interdisciplinary assessment, analysis and evaluation of environmental problems.

Environmental Engineer

Environmental Engineer

Environmental engineers develop solutions to environmental problems, be it pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, or public health issues. Their services are employed by all levels of government. Many environmental engineers are needed with industries, including architectural and engineering firms, as a result of environmental concerns and regulations.
