Environmental Science and Management

The Major

Environmental Science and Management is a multi-disciplinary major, incorporating course work in water resources, wetland ecology, wildlife biology, soil science, forestry, and land use/environmental quality relationships with other disciplines. This is a comprehensive major that includes a solid background in the basic sciences and exposure to a broad array of subject matter relating to environmental science and management. This major provides solid preparation for more specialized study at the graduate level. There are three minor fields of study available within the Department of Natural Resources Science at URI that may serve as focus areas for students in the Environmental Science and Management major: GIS/Remote Sensing; Soil-Environmental Science; and Wildlife and Conservation Biology.

Official URI course information may be found in the printed Bulletin of the University of Rhode Island. An on-line version of the Bulletin and an HTML list of courses taught by the Department of Biological Sciences is available. Undergraduate programs typically incorporate courses at the 100-, 200-, 300-, and 400-levels. The courses for Biology students are listed below.
