Course Description:
The Environmental Science major is an interdisciplinary program operated cooperatively by the Biology and Chemistry Departments. The focus of environmental science is the study of environmental problems and their solutions.

Course of Study

The applied nature of the field requires students to be well versed in many disciplines. Knowledge of the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, physics and math) is essential for someone in the field to discover/understand the nature of the problems. Experience with the social sciences (e.g. political science, economics and philosophy) is necessary in order to understand why humans have a negative impact on the environment and to develop effective solutions.

Careers

The major prepares students for a wide variety of professions ranging from research in conservation biology to work in government with resource agencies to environmental education and interpretation.

Study water quality and resources

Bridgewater College is conveniently located for the study of environmental science. Classes and research projects have easy access to a variety of ecosystems. Human alterations of the natural landscapes are evident throughout the Shenandoah Valley (e.g. agriculture, rapidly growing towns and cities and industrial production). At the same time, pristine and recovering ecosystems are within a short drive (e.g. Shenandoah National Park, Washington and Jefferson National Forest and Paul State Forest). Additionally, many technical resources and internship opportunities are located nearby. Local/regional offices for the Washington and Jefferson National Forest, Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and the National Resource Conservation Service are all located within 20-miles.
