Our Environmental Science Major is designed to explore relationships among humans and the natural environment. Depending on your interests and career goals, you can select either the Natural Science or Social Science programs of study. Both programs are highly interdisciplinary and allow our students (with faculty guidance) to customize their courses of study at UMW.
Our Minor in Environmental Sustainability is designed to allow students from any major to explore environmental issues in greater depth.
There is steady demand in industry, government, education, and advocacy organizations for people trained in the environmental sciences. If you are interested to pursuing advanced study after graduation from UMW, each of our majors provides a strong background for Master’s or Ph.D. level graduate study.
