MUIC > Programs > Undergraduate Programs > Science > Major in Environmental Science

Contemporary society is being challenged by a diverse array of extremely complex environmental problems driven by rapid increases in population and the demands on our life-support systems. Increased environmental pollution from the physical, chemical, and biological contaminants generated by industrial activities, agriculture and food production, and poor natural resource management continue to threaten the ecological and economic stability of our planet. Environmental studies have become necessary to meet the needs of the present age.

Environment students learn how to follow a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to measure, quantify, predict and resolve serious environmental threats by integrating knowledge from appropriate disciplines.
