Bachelor of Science

Environmental Studies

After years of abuse, our earth is in need of protection. As an environmental studies major, you’ll gain your own opinions on how best to protect the planet by studying:

  • The chemical makeup of planet Earth
  • How living systems interact within their environments
  • Human-environmental interactions and their consequences
  • Public policy in environmental law

But earning your bachelor’s degree is more than just studying. We’re implementing a new conservation initiative that’ll allow you to test your own solutions to environmental issues in real-world settings. Already, our students spend time constructing animal shelters and working closely alongside practitioners in the field to research and develop other environmental solutions. You may even have a chance to travel to a conservation site and put your solution-finding skills to the test.

And by studying environmental studies at Lynn, where nearly 25% of our students are international, you’ll gain a very global perspective. You’ll learn how different cultures and traditions around the world have affected their surrounding areas.

As an environmental studies major, your major-specific courses will include such topics as Environmental Risk and Public Health, Wildlife Conservation and Global Environmental Justice.

General education classes will be satisfied through our Dialogues of Learning core curriculum—a program that relates real-world topics to traditional studies.
