Environmental Sciences - Coming fall 2018!

Students interested in the field of environmental sciences will have the option beginning in fall 2018 to pursue a baccalaureate degree, providing a marketable pathway for pursuing a variety of careers related to this field. The curricula will include experiential learning in laboratory and field-based courses, opportunities for independent research, and internships with environmental businesses, non-government and/or government agencies. Such experiential learning will prepare graduates of the program for either a technical career including lab and/or field work (Natural Sciences concentration), or for a career focused on policy-making, such as environmental law and/or resource management (Environmental Studies concentration).

Pre-Health Sciences

A pre-health sciences baccalaureate degree option is available to new students and current healthcare professionals that emphasizes the differences between health and illness and addresses health care needs across the lifespan. The health promotion concentration combines coursework in both the basic sciences and health sciences along with real-world field experience to provide students with the preparation needed to excel in a variety of professional health settings. The exercise science concentration will enable students to gain a broad understanding of the human body as it relates to exercise physiology, anatomy, biomechanics and epidemiology and its applications to training, rehabilitation, and facilities management.

Public Management

Students may want to explore a baccalaureate in public management that will provide them with key management competencies and decision skills to support a wide range of organizations and complex programs and policies. Program graduates will help address the growing need in the nonprofit sector for more employees and professional skills.
