Major in Environmental Science

Lead the charge to protect the planet

With a major in Environmental Science, you will study the environment—and solutions to pressing environmental problems. The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science is a joint degree program between SPEA and the College of Arts and Sciences—to offer you a selection of courses on a wide range of environmental topics, taught by over 40 faculty and instructors across Indiana University.

You'll follow an interdisciplinary approach, gaining knowledge and tools from the traditional sciences, such as biology, chemistry, geology, hydrology, mathematics, meteorology, and physics. Many of the courses include field and laboratory work, providing valuable hands-on experience, and demonstrating the applied nature of environmental science. At the same time, you will be encouraged to think broadly about the relationships between science, policy, and management.

Employment opportunities include environmental consulting firms; federal, state, and local environmental agencies; and non-governmental environmental organizations.
