A major in environmental science provides students with many opportunities in industry, government, and academia.  For example, graduates are well prepared for careers in environmental consulting, environmental regulation, advocacy, or education.  Students can also pursue graduate studies in a wide range of fields including environmental science, ecology, oceanography, forestry, law, medicine, and toxicology.  A program with the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Duke University is available (see Cooperative Programs for details).

Students are encouraged to obtain internship experience in specialized fields of Environmental Science and/or participate in an environmentally oriented study abroad program during their junior year.  Recently, students have served with local educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, state and federal government, and local industries.  Others have spent time in Australia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Canada and other countries.
