Environmental Science and Management B.S.
Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s
The accelerated B.S. to M.E.S.M. Program (ABM) offers qualified students the opportunity to complete both the B.S. in Environmental Science and Management and the Masters of Environmental Science and Management (M.E.S.M.), non-thesis professional degree, in five years.
Environmental Science and Management is a multi-disciplinary major, which incorporates coursework 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.
Three minor fields of study are available within the Department of Natural Resources Science 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.
