Students will be equipped with the scholarly background and intellectual skills to understand a wide range of pressing environmental issues, and they will come to appreciate the physical, economic, political, demographic, and ethical factors that define those issues.  Among the many environmental problems central to our program are groundwater contamination, suburban sprawl, river basin management, environmental justice, and the greening of abandoned urban spaces.  Our graduates find employment with government environmental agencies, citizens' organizations, consulting firms, and corporate environmental affairs departments.

The College of Liberal Arts offers the Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and the College of Science and Technology offers the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science.  A minor also is offered through both colleges.
