For those passionate to study a program that touches and explore many of the big challenges we face in the world today, the Environmental Science Degree program is a great place to begin. Environmental Science is a collection of several fields ranging from physical, biological and chemical processes that occur in the marine environment and on Earth, to political, social and cultural elements that influence and shape our environment.
Through our explorative hands-on learning, you will engage in rigorous environmental issues that concern us locally and tap into what is happening on a global scale. We dive into some of the most controversial topics such as global warming and climate change, to more interpersonal matters, such as cultural norms and lifestyles. Being out in the field is the best classroom! This is where we develop field skills, critical thinking, learning how to solve problems and becoming more exposed to the multidisciplinary fields in Environmental Science.
This Environmental Science Degree program can lead you in the field of:
- Environmental Management

And so much more! The entire World is moving on a trend towards environmental sustainability. So we are in the moment where people in this degree field are needed to continue to guide a new sustainable form of development.
