Environmental Studies - BS

This BS degree in Environmental Studies provides students with the opportunity to learn about the major societal forces that influence environmental issues. These include political agreement supporting legal and regulatory requirements, economics and the marketplace, environmental values, and technology. Students gain technical background blended with a solid foundation in economics, political issues, environmental law, ethics, and communications. Technology and the environment are well supported in existing curricula and contribute to the multidisciplinary nature of the Environmental Studies degree. Technical courses focus on biological sciences, natural resources, and assessment of the environment and come from the Agricultural Economics; Bioenvironmental Sciences; Entomology; Forest Science; Rangeland Ecology and Management; Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences; Soil and Crop Sciences; and Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences. It is the fusion of these courses with those from the Liberal Arts that make this a truly unique curriculum.
