The BS in Environmental Science at Eastern University prepares students to understand both the language of Biology and Ecology, and the language of law and environmental regulations.


Students take upper-level biology courses in Ecology, Environmental Issues, Environmental Regulation and Policy, and at least two field biology electives courses, preferably at a full-time summer field course program such as the Au Sable Institute for Environmental Studies. (Field biology electives are also offered at Eastern University.)

This Environmental Science major helps prepare students for policy work (including at local levels), environmental research or consulting, environmental education, graduate studies related to ecology, and law school, particularly for environmental law.

Why Choose Eastern?

  • Personalized teaching: Our largest classes (60-80 students) are our two introductory courses. Otherwise, upper level courses have approximately 20 students or less. Senior research and thesis classes are limited to 5 students. Students can have extensive faculty contact both during and outside of classes and have diverse course offerings each semester 
  • Faculty research and service: Students can receive credit in directed research projects working with professors in their area of expertise.
  • Christian faith integration: We seek to integrate a Christian worldview with our study of biology. We seek to integrate a Christian worldview - truth God has revealed in the Bible - with our study of the measurable. This includes wrestling with the best responses to new knowledge and technologies, whether issues of global climate change, applications of genetics or issues surrounding evolution.
