Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary study of natural sciences (biology, chemistry, geology) and social sciences (economics, politics, ethics) as they apply to the environment. Focus is on energy issues, climate change, ozone loss, land use, conservation and management, deforestation and biodiversity, among other topics. Practical lab experience emphasizes scientific application as well as critical thinking and analysis.
