Environmental science jobs tend to involve plenty of time in the field. Oakland University’s Environmental Science degree takes the same approach.


You’ll routinely get out of the classroom and into the community, where you can put environmental science principles into practice and get a hands-on introduction to environmental science jobs of all kinds. 

With separate tracks in environmental health and environmental sustainability, our Environmental Science degree is flexible enough to prepare you for Environmental Science careers in research, management, advocacy, conservation, public health, and many other specialties.

You’ll acquire skills and experience that stand out in the environmental science job market and that equip you to solve the environmental challenges of today and tomorrow.
