Bachelor of Science degrees
This major prepares students to solve a wide variety of environmental problems using a sound scientific approach. Students develop a strong background in the basic sciences (e.g. chemistry, biology, geology). This highly interdisciplinary major encourages students to specialize in areas such as ecohydrology; ecological restoration & conservation; natural resource planning & management; pollution & environmental contaminants; and soil biogeochemistry.
Forest Ecology and Management
This major prepares students for careers in forest ecology, management and conservation, including with federal and state agencies, private industrial timber companies, environmental consulting firms and academia. Students are trained in complex, interacting ecological, biological and physical processes to support forest ecosystem management and conservation. Coursework emphasizes experiential, field-based learning to help students connect abstract concepts with patterns and processes that occur in natural ecosystems.
