Science is about discovery—and sharing those discoveries with others. With four field sites within walking distance of campus, you’ll get the chance to conduct research in real-world conditions like wetlands and deciduous forests; collaborate with other scientists to design experiments and identify species; and work side-by-side with faculty and mentors in a research project or for-credit internship.
Whether you want to tackle the effects of climate change, manage forests, or investigate water quality, LVC’s environmental science degree will give you the technical skills and broad knowledge you’ll need for an array of careers.
