We offer two closely associated, but distinct programs for students curious about our environment. Environmental Conservation & Management takes a broadly interdisciplinary approach to questions of human interaction with our environment, and the policies and cultural factors that create that relationship. Environmental Science focuses on inquiry and methodology that ties the natural sciences into an interconnected perspective on the questions we face today.
Environmental Conservation & Management is a hands-on learning program that combines the natural sciences and social sciences with courses in biology, ecology, geography, sociology, anthropology, and political science. Students examine relationships between humans and our environment and conduct their own field research with a focus on interdisciplinary problem-solving.
Common careers for Environmental Conservation & Management graduates include:
