An important responsibility that we have for today and for the future is to balance human needs with the preservation of a functional biosphere. To minimize human impacts and move toward more sustainable practices, we must understand the causes of environmental change and the complex interactions within ecosystems, and design effective strategies for restoration and mitigation of impacts. This requires expertise in environmental monitoring and assessment, determination of appropriate regulations, and policy implementation, and application of basic science in restoration activities. Graduates of the Bachelor of Science program will have a broad range of technical, analytical and communication skills combined with a solid foundation in environmental science. A degree in environmental Science will prepare students for graduate education, work in governmental agencies and environmental consulting, and many other environmentally related fields. Students who complete the degree requirement will : Demonstrate knowledge and integration of the natural sciences as applied to the complexities of environmental protection and sustainability. Critically analyze impacts, both actual and potential, of human activity on the environment with a view to their prevention and/or mitigation. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the scientific method to identify, evaluate and recommend solutions to environmental problems. Communicate scientific findings and analyses in a professional manner through written reports and oral presentations. Display an increased awareness of environmental conditions locally, regionally, nationally and globally so as to promote active participation and social justice considerations in future environmental decisions through science outreach and community engagement
