Mission Statement

The Environmental Science Program seeks to educate and train students in scientific methods and principles, producing students who are environmentally literate. Our program combines classroom, laboratory, and field experiences that prepare our graduates to address interdisciplinary environmental issues in both natural and urban settings. 

Program-level Outcomes

Students successfully completing the Environmental Science Program should be able to:

  1. Identify and explain environmental processes and human/environment interactions;
  2. Apply interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches to environmental problems;
  3. Critically assess and evaluate environmental problems at a local and global scale;
  4. Acquire the ability to monitor and sample environmental conditions; and, 
  5. Design effective oral presentations and scientific papers.

Procedure

Each year, as part of our continuous improvement process, the Environmental Science Program faculty identify specific learning outcomes (skills and knowledge) that we expect our students to master.  We devise a plan to sample and evaluate student work in these areas to help us assess the effectiveness of our instructional design.  Reports documenting our efforts and results will will be available at the end of each academic year.
