The environmental science program supports environmentally focused coursework and service that will educate you in academic disciplines related to the environment; use the themes of sustainability and shalom to provide a center for analysis, reflection and action; and manifest the principles of the kingdom of God by preparing you for a life of environmental service within the global human and ecological community. Environmental science is appropriate if you desire a broad scientific training for government, business and non-profit organizations or graduate study in fields related to the environment.
- Small class sizes
- Emphasis on research
- Faculty who are experts in their field and who care about their students
Common career paths for environmental scientists include teaching, research and governmental work. Our graduates are also well-prepared for graduate study, including teacher credential programs and master’s research. Specific opportunities can be found in public affairs, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation and graduate study in any of the related sciences.
