How does the environment affect humans—and how do we affect our environment? With Penn State Behrend’s B.S. in Environmental Science, you’ll apply interdisciplinary knowledge to research those questions and prepare to join an in-demand field.
Why Penn State Behrend?
When you study environmental science, the natural world is your laboratory. At Penn State Behrend, that means you study in a designated arboretum bordered by old-growth forest and Wintergreen Gorge—all just minutes from the unique ecosystem of Lake Erie and Presque Isle State Park.
Plus, our research requirement and capstone project mean you’ll get your hands dirty (literally) with real-world experiences in the field—including through research and internship opportunities with Pennsylvania Sea Grant.
