Environmental Science

Academic College: College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources

The Environmental Science degree at OSU teaches students how to improve the human race’s welfare through understanding environmental policies as they relate to science’s understanding of policies’ benefits and costs. Upper-division course work includes problem solving in water and soil quality, economic and social policy, political science, resource management and engineering. Students will also be exposed to subjects including communications, philosophy, ethics and sociology. Graduates work in areas including land-use planning, environmental management, natural resources management, waste disposal, water and soil quality, environmental remediation and policy analysis. Industries associated with the extraction, utilization and manipulation of natural resources have increased the number of employees with environmental training to address regulation compliance, litigation, monitoring, public relations and management practices.
