Department of Environmental Sciences

All of the Center for Environmental Science students actively participate in research projects. The Institutes of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, Watershed Studies, and Spatial Analysis often provide resources to aid in student research. The undergraduate program includes a required 10 to 15 credits of senior project or internship. All senior level students gain practical experience working on paid or volunteer internships or research projects under the guidance of a faculty advisor and complete reports that are available in Wilson Library. In addition, results of this research are often presented at professional science meetings or published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Last year Environmental Science students participated in 64 research projects and produced 23 conference papers, presentations or posters. Faculty of the Dept. of Environmental Science are highly involved in research and provide many opportunities to involve graduate students in cutting-edge research. The graduate program currently enrolls about 40 Master's degree students. The program is nationally recognized and admission is highly competitive.
