Mercyhurst University

Environmental Science Bachelor of Arts • Bachelor of Science

Environmental Science deals with the intersection between humans and the natural world. It is a complex field that touches upon aspects of the biological and physical sciences, governmental policies, economics, and social issues; success at addressing environmental issues therefore requires an interdisciplinary approach. Consequently, the Mercyhurst University Environmental Science major educates and trains students in the physical, biological and social sciences so that they are reflectively aware of the natural environment in which they live, are globally responsible of the Earth and its resources, and are prepared to successfully address environmental issues on any number of fronts.
