To make the degree in environmental science more specialized, it is recommended that elective and additional courses be taken for a second major in either biology or chemistry. A second major gives the student an area of specialization within the area of environmental science. To get a second major in biology, a student needs to take (in addition to the courses listed in the suggested curriculum) three of the following courses: BIOL 3099 , BIOL 3312 , BIOL 3418 , BIOL 3420 , BIOL 3510 , BIOL 3522 or BIOL 4425 and accompanying labs.
For information about a second major in chemistry, refer to the “Department of Chemistry and Physics ” section of this catalog. For information about the master of science (M.S.) degree in environmental science, refer to the “Graduate Catalog."
