Twenty courses are required: sixteen in natural science/mathematics (including the senior capstone), two in the humanities/social sciences, and two integrative seminars (an environmental Learning Community seminar and a senior seminar taken concurrently with the senior capstone).
Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies
The B.A. in Environmental Studies degree provides emphasis on the social sciences and humanities. This degree serve as solid preparation for entry level work in the non-science areas of the environmental field, as well as for admission into graduate school in such areas (environmental policy, management, sustainability, etc.). Thirteen courses are required, including five courses in natural sciences and five courses in the social sciences/humanities. The last course remains the senior capstone, which will now include a new one-credit senior seminar.
