Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Paul Engler College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree


Refer to the "Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees " section of this catalog.

Environmental Science, Option I


(Major Code: 105)

A student must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours to include at least 39 advanced hours.

University Core Curriculum Requirements


Refer to the "University Core Curriculum " section of this catalog. Students must take the following courses.

From Mathematics - Code 20 (3 hours)


Fourth hour from MATH 2412  (if taken) will count toward Component Area Option (Code 90).

From Life and Physical Sciences - Code 30 (6 hours)


Lab hours will count toward Component Area Option (Code 90).

From Component Area Option - Code 90 (6 hours)


Note:


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) courses and accompanying labs from the following list to complete the Biology Elective Requirement: BIOL 3099 , BIOL 3301 , BIOL 3312 BIOL 3420 , BIOL 3510 , BIOL 4425 , or BIOL 4510  (if not taken to satisfy the Environmental Science Core). Note: the Biology Elective requirement specifies six BIOL courses beyond the 1000 level, five of which must have a lab.

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."

(Major Code: 105)

A student must complete a minimum of 120 semester credit hours to include at least 39 advanced hours.

This option is designed to prepare students for employment in the geosciences field and to help prepare them for the Certified Professional Geologist Exam.

University Core Curriculum Requirements
