Professionals in the field of environmental studies play an essential role in preserving our environment, without which human life would not exist. Earning a bachelor's in environmental studies degree is an important step for anyone who is looking to pursue a career in this field.
Post University's Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies Degree program provides students with a rigorous, yet flexible, interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental science within a global, geopolitical context. At Post University, our Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies Degree program faculty members have strong academic credentials and vast experience in the environmental field.
The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies Degree program is a truly interdisciplinary course of study. While the program provides a core science background, the requirement is less than that of the Environmental Science program. This permits students to incorporate a cluster elective concentration in: Business, Communications, Environmental Education, Environmental Pre-Law, Environmental Pre-Law Enforcement, or Sociology. This program is an ideal choice for students interested in environmental law, environmental policy, conservation, or environmental education.
As a graduate with a bachelor's in environmental studies degree from Post University, you will possess the knowledge and experience you need to take positions with non-profit organizations, environmental education centers (nature centers, parks, and recreation centers), public relations firms, and environmental policy lobbying firms. As with the bachelor's in environmental science degree, environmental studies students also will have the background needed to pursue advanced professional career preparation and graduate study.
