From Here on Out, Everyone Will Feel Your Impact

In our programs, you’ll learn science by doing science — in the field, in the lab, in internships. As you put science into practice, you will work with faculty on cutting-edge research, problem-solve to reach scientific conclusions, and prepare to be a leader in the field you choose.

You’ll get personal attention from your professors as you explore the fascinating new directions of science. With our liberal-arts focus on critical thinking and collaboration, you’ll be ready for a career in areas ranging from climate change, renewable energy, and broadcasting to government, education, and medicine.

We Stand as a Destination for Elevated Thinking

Our programs emphasize real-world experience, innovation, and creative solutions. That will help you develop the adaptable skills you’ll need, no matter where you go — and help you make your impact.

Here are some program features:

  • As a student in our nationally recognized atmospheric sciences program, you’ll focus on a high-demand area of the field by choosing a concentration in broadcasting, climate change, graduate school, national weather service/military, or private industry
  • Students in our new climate change science program work with highly respected faculty who do climate change research that impacts government and business initiatives
  • As a biology or biology/field naturalist student, you will choose a general, naturalist, or pre-med concentration
  • If you’re a natural science student, you’ll prepare for a career in the booming health care field with either a pre-dental, pre-med, or pre-med tech track

Our programs in environmental science and sustainability studies are in fields with many wide-ranging career opportunities for you to be a leader, from public policy and law to sustainable food production.
