Environmental, Sustainability, and Geographic Studies
Bachelor's of Science

The B.S. in Environmental, Sustainability, and Geographic Studies degree prepares students for thinking critically about the complexities of human-environmental interactions through technical course work encompassing scientific writing, quantitative skills and data analysis, applied field- and lab-based experiences (including internships, study abroad, community service, collaborative assignments and research, capstone projects), and effective use of geospatial technologies (e.g., GIS and cartography, GPS, radar, satellite, drone, photogrammetry, environmental quality monitors, and surveying).

Since the geo-environmental sector is very broad in scope, the major does not include pre-defined and narrow concentrations. Instead, the program allows students to complete a customized set of elective coursework that best prepares them for any one of the wide ranging careers in the environmental field that they find of most interest as well as for graduate school.
