Environmental Science & Policy

Bachelor of Science

DescriptionDegree Requirements

The goal of the Environmental Science & Policy program is simple—to prepare graduates of the program to meaningfully address environmental issues in the Lakes Region and around the world. The program produces graduates well-versed in complex fields and social and environmental disciplines.

The degree program includes classes from the social science program, the three science departments, the business, math and English departments. Additional support comes from regular lectures provided by the Center for the Environment’s colloquium series and other on campus environmental organizations.

The BS in Environmental Science and Policy program prepares students for careers in government and non-government organizations, consulting firms, and further studies at the graduate level. There are two options within the program, a community and environmental focus and an environmental science focus. Both options develop an understanding of the science of environmental issues and the application of policy to social and cultural interests of industry and communities. The program functions in collaboration with the Center for the Environment and encourages student research and service-learning experiences. Students have the opportunity to design a program that will address both their environmental and policy interests.
