About the Program

A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Environmental Studies is a good choice for those who plan to work as environmental consultants, in conservation districts, state and federal environmental agencies, non-governmental organizations or plan on attending graduate school.

A Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies is a good choice for those who plan to enter fields such as law, journalism, public policy or business. The course requirements for a B.A. in Environmental Studies are designed to leave more room for a double major in a non-science field.
