We have only one planet, so if you’re interested in studies that will set you on a path toward understanding, preserving and protecting it, you’ve come to the right place. The Environmental Sciences degree builds on the interdisciplinary strengths in the natural and social sciences at OSU. You will learn broadly about environmental sciences from a variety of perspectives, while deeply exploring one area of specialization. Going beyond the classroom by getting into the field, lab or an internship is a key part of the program.
