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. Students are encouraged to develop a track 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.
