Earth and Environmental Science

Earth and Environmental ScienceEarth and Environmental Science

Environmental scientists use their knowledge to gain a better understanding of the earth system; it's air, water, land, and interconnections with life. While some focus on the quality of air, water, and soil, others predict volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and floods.  At Wilkes, students are exposed to the fundamental Earth processes occurring in our environment and will graduate with an understanding of how changes (natural and anthropogenic) are influencing Earth systems. 


Earth and Environmental ScienceMultiple Options

The Environmental Science program offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree, and a minor in Environmental Sciences.  These degree programs reflect the diversity in the broad field of environmental sciences

Our laboratories offer our students hands-on, learn-by-doing opportunities.  We use the environment as a “natural laboratory” for field-based training and research. 


Careers in Environmental Science
Our majors acquire the skills to pursue interdisciplinary approaches to problem solving and are well prepared for careers in consulting, graduate school, or government.
