The Environmental Science program offers a practical, technical-based, cross-disciplinary program centered on biology, chemistry and geology. The program integrates classroom work with extensive field, lab and research experience and allows students opportunities to interact with working environmental professionals. All students take an identical core of Environmental Science courses complemented by a concentration in one of the three core sciences.
Motivated students have the opportunity to obtain a double major in both Environmental Science and their concentration area. Graduates leave Eastern with the opportunity for immediate employment in the environmental profession or for entry into graduate or professional school.
After acceptance, students must maintain a 2.50 GPA overall to remain in the program. To finish in four years, it is assumed that students will start the program with the necessary math background to enter into the calculus sequence.
