Students in the Environmental Science major receive interdisciplinary training in the relevant natural science disciplines, and a clearly defined specialization in the environmental sciences. Students are exposed to lab work in a variety of courses including geology, geography, biology, physics, and chemistry, as well as field trips and field experiments, computer languages and programming, and math proficiency.

Environmental Science majors also take classes in environmental policy. The program is flexible, with elective courses in the junior and senior years, and students can include courses offered through the BU Marine Program, the Tropical Ecology Program in Ecuador, as well as many courses from summer field programs, the School for Field Studies, and other environmental study abroad programs. A number of students double major in related disciplines such as biology, marine science, or geology.
