Environmental Science Major

Our new environmental science major prepares you to face the challenges of a changing world. Your courses will give you a strong and diverse foundation for a rewarding career in a green future.

Overview

Focus on your area of interest by choosing one of three track emphases:

  • Natural science:
    With an emphasis in biology and chemistry courses
  • Geosciences:
    With coursework in geography, geology and geographic information systems (GIS)
  • Environmental resource management:
    With courses in environmental ethics, sustainable development and policy issues

You'll broaden your perspective with courses from other tracks, and you'll cap your coursework working with a team to solve a real environmental problem in our region. All environmental science majors will benefit from UW-Whitewater's innovative water programs and partnership with the Milwaukee Water Council.
