Curricula and Professions in Environment and Natural Resources

Cook College students receive a solid foundation in science, one that will enable them to help develop the environmental solutions for tomorrow. Environmental sciences majors learn to apply biological, chemical, and physical sciences to problems in the environment. Marine sciences majors concentrate on the study of the marine environment and its interactions with the earth, the biosphere, and the atmosphere. Ecology and natural resources majors learn about natural living systems and how they can be managed to provide benefits to people. The environmental planning and design and the environmental policy, institutions, and behavior majors pay particular attention to the interaction between natural and social systems. Environmental and business economics majors learn to apply economic concepts to the analysis of policy issues. Graduates in these and other environment and natural resources-related programs enter graduate schools or embark on many successful professional career paths. Opportunities include careers in government, education, consulting, or employment with landscape architecture, architecture, engineering, and planning firms.
