Overview

After finishing the foundation courses in the Environmental Studies program at Christopher Newport University, students in the bachelor of science program select their major area and take upper-level courses that further develop critical-thinking skills and field techniques.

After Graduation

Our graduates go on to be sought-after laboratory and field scientists, wildlife biologists, forensics experts, and state or government biologists, among other careers in science.

Biology majors are also well prepared to continue their education at top graduate programs and medical schools. Many graduates enter Christopher Newport’s MS program in Environmental Science or the Master of Arts in Teaching Program. Both offer a five-year option as well as a traditional master’s program.
