Environmental Science B.S. Curriculum Revision FALL 2018

The Environmental Science B.S. curriculum has been revised, with the changes going into effect in Fall Quarter 2018. All incoming freshmen from fall 2018 onward will follow this new program.

Continuing students entering the major spring 2018 or earlier will have a choice – to follow the new program or continue with the existing program.

If you are unsure which program to follow or would like an assessment, please make an appointment with Royce here.


Environmental Science B.S. Student Handbook

We have put together what we believe is the most comprehensive, information-packed student handbook to help usher each of our majors through from matriculation to graduation and even beyond.

The Student Handbook includes comprehensive information about the prep courses, major courses, the Senior Practicum, and all of the minor/concentrations. In addition, we’ve included some advice about how to get into research, finding internships, and volunteering; study abroad opportunities; and getting involved on and off campus in environmental concerns.
