The ECS major offers a series of problem-based learning courses, culminating in a capstone course in the senior year emphasizing integration of science and policy approaches to real-world environmental issues.

About

The Ecosystem Science and Policy program offers two undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). Students earning a B.S. in ECS must also complete a science track to deepen their understanding of a specific area. Students earning a B.A. in ECS complete a series of courses with a stronger social science focus. ECS courses for both degrees emphasize integration of science and policy approaches to real-world environmental issues.

The B.S. degree in Ecosystem Science and Policy is recommended for students intending to attend graduate or professional schools in pursuit of research or academic careers (including secondary or higher education). It is also suitable for those preparing for technical careers in government and private industries concerned with the environment.
