Top Colleges – Environmental Studies/Science

Every environmental science program will include a dose of basic math, science, biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. After all, tackling issues as massive as climate change and preserving our scarce natural resources will require an interdisciplinary effort. What separates the wheat from the chaff (you’ll learn this procedure in an Agronomy class) are a program’s hands-on offerings, study abroad opportunities, and expert faculty. Additionally, top programs in environmental science prepare students to be great communicators, writers, and problem-solvers so that they can better influence policy-makers to help make the earth a sustainable place.
