Environmental Science Program

The Environmental Science Program at Southern Methodist University is an interdisciplinary program with a technical core of biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics and physics. Students choose an upper-level emphasis in either biology, chemistry or earth science, culminating in their senior year with a multi-disciplinary Environmental Science Seminar focusing on real-world issues and problems.

The Environmental Science Program develops the scientific literacy, technical skills and creative problem-solving techniques necessary to understand and deal with environmental processes and issues.

Environmental science provides a good undergraduate science degree for students who are interested in careers in medicine, law, public policy, enforcement, site remediation, or conservation biology.
