Students and faculty returning from sampling in an aquatic ecosystem

Get an active, hands-on, scientific education that prepares you to address critical environmental issues facing the world. You will be prepared to navigate the social and political climate of your natural resources or environmental science-oriented career.

While our emphasis on physical and biological sciences is clear, we also provide you with a strong social science background. This is especially useful for students who are interested in pursuing a career in areas like policy, law, or advocacy.

Many alumni of our B.S. program have gone on to complete graduate and professional degrees. While there are amazing graduate degree opportunities in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, if pursuing a graduate degree is not in your plans, there are plenty of career opportunities available right after graduating with your bachelor’s degree.
