Overview

Perhaps work, athletics, or a double major make an Earth and Environmental Sciences program at Lehigh University too hard to squeeze in. Or maybe you're just interested in the science of the environment as a cool, interesting liberal-arts degree.

Our B.A. is flexible, simple, and gives you plenty of chances for field work if that's to your liking. A basic program leaves plenty of room for double-majoring, building career credentials, or exploring the wealth of offerings available here at Lehigh. On the other hand, by working with your advisor and keeping an eye on our B.S. requirements, you can build a rigorous B.A. that will get you into grad school and beyond.
