About

Students interested in environmental issues can select one of two pathways at Dominican. The Environmental Science major at Illinois Dominican University is for students whose main interest is in the scientific aspects of environmental issues. The natural science major with an environmental studies concentration is designed for students interested in a broader approach to environmental issues.

Overview

The university's new science building, Parmer Hall, has state-of-the-art classrooms, equipment, teaching and research laboratories, and a human cadaver available to undergraduates.

The Environmental Science major is interdisciplinary. Students complete required courses in biology, chemistry, physics and computer programming. Two mathematics courses are strongly recommended, and a rich variety of other courses are available, including geology, ecology, zoology and botany.

Learning outcomes

This major at Illinois Dominican University hones computation and statistical skills for analyzing information and oral and writing skills for effective communication. It also provides students with an understanding of the interplay between environmental issues and social, political and business issues.

Environmental science students must complete an internship or independent research project in the field. Past students have interned at the Brookfield Zoo, Browning Ferris Industries, Clarke Mosquito, Waste Management, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and a wide range of other organizations.
