The environmental science degree offers a broad background in the basic and applied sciences, with foundation courses in general biology, general and organic chemistry and environmental engineering. The major is partially self-designed, allowing you to take additional upper division courses in the areas that suit your interests, such as water resources waste treatment, or chemical analysis of environmental samples.
