What Can I Do with a Bachelor in Interdisciplinary Studies - Environmental Science?

If you plan to enter an occupation requiring a broad general education, are seeking career advancement or personal intellectual enrichment, or if you are considering a pre-professional plan, our program might fit the bill. We offer you the opportunity to design a plan of study, in consultation with an adviser, to meet your individual educational needs.
