Environmental Science Major
Learn from – and do research with – professors who are experts in their fields and who invest their time in you, so that you can understand the complex, real-world issues related to environmental science. Studying the environment inevitably means studying the ways we interact with it. At EMU we focus on how to improve our interactions toward conservation and sustainability.
At EMU, environmental science majors learn by doing. They build resumes that include environmental research and that boast coursework in a variety of disciplines. Biology, sociology and peacebuilding professors work together on environmental science courses that weave forward-thinking sustainability practices with issues of international and community development and conservation.
Alumni are employed in a variety of related fields and have advanced degrees.
Student Internships and Opportunities
Our graduate program in peacebuilding is also an asset to any undergrad in the fields of development and sustainability. Dozens of grad-level international scholars flock to EMU each year to study at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, and many professors around campus have decades of experience working and living overseas advocating for those in the margins.
