Environmental Sciences, BS


Degree Requirements

Students must meet the general education requirements, as stated elsewhere in this catalog, and complete the courses listed in the curriculum to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences. A total of 183 credits are required for the degree. Students are encouraged to develop a technical emphasis area based on their own interests.

Students are required to pass each science course with a grade of "C" or better. This requirement is based on the quantitative skills needed in later courses as well as the degree of integration in subject material that is present throughout the program.

The Environmental Sciences Curriculum

The Environmental Sciences curriculum integrates "hands-on" skills and knowledge. Field or laboratory work are important components of many ES courses. Several freshman and sophomore courses allow a student to develop skills in computer applications, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), simulation modeling, and riparian assessment methods.
