Environmental Science

Environmental scientists are problem solvers and agents of constructive social change. They gather information, set policies and study laws that affect our health and quality of life. Depending on your interest, you can combine your major with a minor in business to take on a managerial role in environmental studies. A minor in social sciences could lead to work as a consultant, and a minor in chemistry or biology allows you to work as an environmental scientist. You can also combine your major with other minors such as global studies or community leadership. You might choose to enter the new field of bioremediation, where scientists study living organisms, like microbes, to find ways to clean up the environment for a better quality of life.
