If you’re passionate about preserving nature and discovering more about Creation, dive into Taylor University’s Environmental Science program. Students who major in Environmental Science integrate biology, chemistry, geology, geography, and mathematics with environmental laws, policies, economics, and ethics for an interdisciplinary understanding of the Earth and sustainability.
Our award-winning Randall Center provides a space solely dedicated to Earth & Environmental Science (EES) students and their hands-on experiences. Practical experiences come from experimental courses, such as a Water Resources and Appropriate Technology class where students design and implement technologies to better resource and conserve water in Guatemala, and field studies courses in locations such as the Rocky Mountains and the Black Hills of South Dakota.
But our students don’t have to travel far to participate in field studies; Environmental Science majors utilize Taylor’s 145-acre arboretum—a site for environmental study just outside of Randall.
Core Environmental Science major courses will provide you with a strong foundation in the systems and principles of general environmental issues and technical skills. After gathering expansive expertise in the fields on biology, chemistry, and geology, each Environmental Science major chooses to concentrate further on geology or biology and dive deeper into specified environmental issues and processes:
Environmental science can be a beneficial supplement to another passion, making your degree eco-friendlier. The Environmental Science minor is designed for other science majors who wish to broaden their understanding of environmental concerns.
