Environmental Majors

We offer two majors in the environmental field, a BS in environmental science (EVS) and a BA in environmental studies (ESP). A minor in environmental geology is also available.

BS Versus BA

The BS program is designed to give students the background for graduate work and professional careers in earth and environmental sciences, and in those areas in which the earth sciences overlap with the life sciences or with engineering.

The BA program is designed to allow more flexibility in program design. It is pursued not only by students preparing for graduate work in the earth sciences but also by students interested in law, management, or teaching.
