Overview

About Environmental Science from University of Oklahoma

Students also choose two upper division Professional Electives in the preferred area of emphasis within environmental science. This flexible program prepares students for careers in government, consulting and industry.

CEES has developed an innovative two semester capstone sequence. The first course in the sequence (Professional Practice) covers a lot of the non-technical issues associated with environmental science practice (e.g., professional registration, ethics, and environmental regulations); the second course (Environmental Capstone) focuses on a real world environmental problem. 

The students are assembled into multi-disciplinary teams with environmental engineering students. The teams are structured to simulate a typical environmental consulting firm.  The student teams address a real-world environmental problem and their work is evaluated by practicing engineers and scientists. One past capstone class undertook a study of mine water discharge to develop a passive treatment system located in the Tar Creek Superfund site in northeast Okla.
