Overview

These are but a few of the better-known issues encompassed by environmental science, an interdisciplinary field that addresses interactions between people and their natural environment.

The Environmental Science Program at DU is designed to provide students with the knowledge and technical skills to identify, analyze and resolve environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. Unlike programs offering degrees in environmental studies, DU's Environmental Science Program is grounded in the physical and natural sciences, providing students with a solid understanding of the physical properties governing the environment. Students learn not only about environmental issues, but how to use science to find solutions to environmental problems.
