About

Environmental sciences is an interdisciplinary major that focuses on scientific study of the environment and understanding of the earth as a complex network of interacting organic and inorganic systems. This bachelor program degree in Environmental Sciences is offered by The University of Iowa.

Overview

Career possibilities for students in this major include jobs in conservation, environmental assessment, and hazardous waste management. Graduates also may work in a state park or pollution control agency or as an inspection and compliance officer with the National Park Service. The major also is excellent preparation for graduate study.

At The University of Iowa, we offer a  bachelor degree in Environmental Sciences. Iowa’s Environmental Sciences Program offers rigorous training and a comprehensive approach, with four diverse environmental tracks: biosciences, chemical sciences, geosciences, and hydrosciences. Hands-on field experience is a crucial component of the program, and students are strongly encouraged to study abroad. 

The major is truly interdisciplinary. Students will study and do supervised research with faculty members from the program’s four sponsoring departments—biology, chemistry, geography, and geoscience—as well as participating faculty from chemical and biochemical engineering, anthropology, and civil and environmental engineering.
