Prepares students for graduate studies or careers as scientists in environmental science or in one of the traditional physical sciences (e.g., biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, meteorology, physics).
Field experience and independent research.
Jointly administered through the O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences.
BS in Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Human Ecology
Focuses on basic concepts of outdoor resources, the relationships and interactions of people and outdoor resources, and how to manage them.
Topics include outdoor recreation, environmental education, interpretive techniques, outdoor adventure education, nature study, recreation resource management, human health and natural environments and organized camping.
Prepares students for careers in an array of settings–including municipal parks and recreation departments, nature preserves, nonprofit organizations, outdoor adventure organizations, and state and federal agencies (e.g., US Forest Service and National Park Service).
Prepares the next generation of environmental health professionals through scholarship focused on the influences and effects of environmental factors on human health and disease.
The program prepares health scientists to conduct and share through scholarly pursuits the results of original lab-based research; to emphasize the scientific, technological, policy, and management skills needed to address environmental and occupational health concerns; and to advance the discipline of environmental health.
Prepares students for public health professions situated in government agencies, nonprofit organizations, hospitals, schools and universities, and corporations.
