NVU's environmental science programs will give you the tools you need to explore, and help find solutions for, some of the problems caused by humans’ impact on the natural world. When you graduate, you’ll have the background—with plenty of real-world experience—to become an environmental leader as a regulator, scientist, educator, or in another position.
Environmental Science at NVU-Lyndon
Our NVU-Lyndon program features an Integrated Sciences Semester instead of introductory courses for new students. You’ll team with faculty to address a problem, such as climate change or water contamination, and spend days working in the field and lab. You will earn credits toward required introductory courses and start taking more advanced courses in your second semester.

Environmental Science at NVU-Johnson
In our NVU-Johnson program, you’ll choose a concentration in environmental policy and advocacy or environmental analysis and assessment. If environmental policy and advocacy is your focus, you may have the option of studying at Vermont Law School, which offers eligible NVU-Johnson graduates scholarship aid as they pursue a VLS master’s in environmental law and policy, energy regulation and law, or—with an appropriate LSAT score—a law (J.D.) degree.
