The B.A. in environmental science is a transdisciplinary program focused on understanding environmental science from an integrated socio-ecological perspective and is designed to prepare students for future careers that require a broad understanding of environment using a transdisciplinary skillset. The B.A. degree places a greater emphasis on social and behavioral science, humanities, art, health, communication, and leadership skills than the B.S. degree option, while including a set of core courses in science and math. The inclusion of research or internship experience enables students to gain expertise and experience working towards solutions of current environmental problems. Students graduating with a B.A. in environmental science are well equipped for careers in advocacy, administration, community healthcare, public relations, social and behavioral science research, and sustainability planning.
Special admission requirements: The admission standards for all students pursuing degrees in environmental science are mathematics ACT 22 and CPE minimum standards of 18 and 20 reading, or successful completion of appropriate developmental courses. Transfer students must also meet these requirements before declaring an environmental science major.
