Environmental Analysis Coursework

Recommended Background for the Environmental Analysis program:

  • A bachelor's degree (B.S. or B.A) in chemistry, biochemistry, or a closely related science or engineering program that includes coursework in general physics, chemistry, calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations
  • Strong quantitative abilities recommended
  • Statistics, introductory economics, and computer skills are preferred, but not required

Course Requirements

The Environmental Analysis program focuses on the quantitative and analytical aspects of environmental studies. The degree is composed of nine required science core hours, nine required cohort hours (which includes the internship) and 21 credit hours of program track elective courses. The Environmental Analysis degree requires a total of 39 credit hours, not including the internship.
