¿Qué aprenderé?

We only have one planet—and with a Bachelor of Science in earth and environmental sciences (EES) from UNO, you can play a major role in protecting it. As you pursue the concentration of your choice, you’ll explore the delicate balance that keeps our world healthy and habitable. And as today’s environmental challenges make that global balance even more precarious, you’ll become a trusted and knowledgeable voice for environmental stewardship when it’s needed most.

Located in America’s coastal heartland, the University of New Orleans is the ideal place to study the earth and its ecosystems in all their enormous variation. Our Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences was founded in the 1960s and has grown rapidly into a thriving, rigorous academic center that is highly regarded locally and nationally. Our faculty are committed to teaching the next generation of geologists, environmental scientists, environmental engineers, and other stewards of our remarkable planet.

Earth and Environmental Sciences Concentrations

EES is a broad field, with plenty of branches you can explore as you shape your career path. That’s why UNO offers two concentrations within the Bachelor of Science in earth and environmental sciences degree, so your degree will be as closely related to your future career as possible. You can choose to focus your studies in either of these concentrations, supplementing the standard degree curriculum with tailored coursework to prepare you for success in either field. Both concentrations are 120-credit-hour programs, including 16 required credits in the concentration of your choice.

Environmental and Coastal Science

Because our world’s environments are so complex and connected, environmental science is naturally an interdisciplinary practice. You’ll draw on all different areas of science to understand environmental problems and human impacts on the environment. And from our location in New Orleans, you’ll be ideally placed to study the complex issues facing costal habitats in our unique ecosystem in the Mississippi Delta.

You’ll take courses in areas including environmental science, coastal geomorphology, and oceanography, which will prepare you for a wide variety of careers in research, policy, industry, and beyond.
