the areas of environmental life sciences, technology and policy.
the undergraduate level, students gain the necessary skills for
entry-level field and research positions. Class lectures
guest speakers introduce the importance of policy-making and
awareness in the environmental field, while laboratory and internship
provide a working knowledge of the latest in environmental
technology and field practices.
The graduate programs provide
three options for students to further their studies in the environmental
life sciences. The Master

for those individuals interested pursuing research in the environmental
field. The Master of Environmental Studies (the non-thesis
