Bachelors in Environmental Studies. Environmental Sustainability Major At EMU, you’ll receive a top-notch scientific education thanks to professors who are experts in their fields and our well-rounded, interdisciplinary learning approach. It’s part of what makes EMU a Christian university like no other. Environmental sustainability majors learn to truly grasp the nature of environmental research and issues by taking courses in a variety of disciplines. Biology, sociology and peacebuilding professors work closely together on environmental sustainability courses that weave forward-thinking sustainability practices with issues of international and community development and conservation. At the same time, students get a more in-depth education in one field by choosing a science or a social sustainability track within the environmental sustainability major. Our graduate program in peacebuilding is also an asset to any undergrad in the fields of development and sustainability; dozens of grad-level international scholars flock to EMU each year to study at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. And many professors around campus have decades of experience working and living overseas advocating for those in the margins. About Our Environmental Sustainability Major What makes EMU’s environmental sustainability major so unique? Plenty! Our program provides a combination of breadth and depth. All students learn the interdisciplinary nature of environmental research and issues by taking courses in a variety of disciplines. At the same time, students get a more in-depth education in one area by choosing a science or a social sustainability track within the environmental sustainability major. Key Distinctives of Our Program An interdisciplinary approach to understanding contemporary issues such as local hydrofracking, wilderness preservation. We study modern concerns like global warming from both scientific and social perspectives. Job-related experience in a wide variety of organizations through a required practicum, or internship. Practical experiences in private businesses, farms, and government agencies are an important step in developing a career in environmental sustainability. Research opportunities on student-faculty collaborative projects, such as a grant-funded steam restoration project in a local mountain community. EMU cross-cultural study abroad trips that focus on sustainability issues, like recent trips to New Zealand, Bolivia and the Galapagos, and Kenya. Environmental science concentration The environmental science concentration focuses on the biological and chemical aspects of environmental sustainability. Solid and challenging coursework in natural sciences prepares students to work on such issues as biodiversity and loss of species, pollution and toxicology, land use and degradation, waste management, resource depletion and energy consumption, climate change, and alternative agriculture. Students focus on “traditional” environmental science courses from the disciplines of ecology, chemistry and physiology, but also learn the interdisciplinary nature of environmental research and issues while working with sociology, economics, and development professors. Classes address local and global sustainability issues and include hands-on research projects. During a required internship, students work with a local environmental organization such as Shenandoah National Park, The Nature Conservancy or the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Environmental and social sustainability concentration The environmental and social sustainability concentration focuses on the social, economic, and political aspects of environmental sustainability. Challenging coursework in various social sciences prepares students to work on such issues as environmental advocacy, conservation and sustainable development, land use and degradation, environmental education and agricultural extension, climate change, waste management, and alternative energy. This track combines traditional environmental science coursework with applied sociology courses that emphasize international and community development and conservation. You’ll have hands-on opportunities to work in areas of personal interest like peace education, legislative and foreign policy advocacy, community organizing, restorative justice and mediation, social justice and peace advocacy, human rights and immigrants’ rights.

The Environmental Sciences major prepares students to analyze, understand, and solve environmental problems. [+]

Bachelors in Environmental Studies. The Environmental Science major prepares students to analyze, understand, and solve environmental problems. The program of study in the Environmental Science major is interdisciplinary, emphasizing an integrated approach to knowledge in the field. Because the study of environmental problems requires a sound understanding of scientific principles, the Environmental Science major is grounded in the natural sciences and mathematics. The curriculum includes a social science component, enabling students to gain an understanding of environmental economic and policy issues. Field experiences, internships and practicums are emphasized. This major helps to develop the following skills and abilities: formulate and interpret models that describe environmental processes facility with laboratory and field instrumentation, software for statistical analysis and modeling, taxonomic keys, and other practical skills design and implement research strategies and procedures to collect, organize, evaluate, and interpret data that characterize environmental systems characterize and analyze human impacts on the environment design and evaluate strategies, technologies and methods for remediation of degraded environments design and evaluate strategies for sustainable management of environmental systems access and manage data resources applicable to environmental processes and management This major is designed for students who are seriously interested in environmental concerns and studies. Students who plan to pursue this major should emphasize science and mathematics in their course work. Courses in biology, chemistry, geoscience, physics, and mathematics provide the needed background. While many universities are just beginning to recognize the need for environmental science programs, UW-Green Bay has nearly 40 years of teaching and research experience in the field. Its program was one of the first in the nation. The interdisciplinary focus allows students to have a diverse education. They receive hands-on and practical learning experiences in both laboratory and field. A significant number of graduates of this major gain entry-level positions in the environmental science field. About one-third of these positions are in the public sector, and two-thirds are in the private sector in industries, business, and engineering consulting firms. Numerous graduates have successfully completed master's and doctoral degrees. Faculty members are actively addressing environmental problems and their solutions at the regional, national and international levels. This activity keeps them up to date on current trends and topics in the field. They provide opportunities for undergraduates to become involved in their research projects, where students can gain valuable knowledge and experience. Faculty members are highly involved in the students' education, both inside and outside of the classroom. Environmental Science students have access to modern computer facilities which are continually upgraded. Computing software resources emphasizing geographic information systems (GIS) and mathematical modeling and statistical analysis tools also are available. In addition to general-access computer laboratories, students can also use a science-dedicated computer laboratory. Students wishing to gain hands-on field experiences have access to the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity which includes the 290-acre Cofrin Memorial Arboretum on campus, several natural areas in the region, the University Herbarium, and the Richter Museum of Natural History. The latter two facilities have recently moved to new and expanded space. A variety of equipment is available for environmental measurements and monitoring. Laboratory instrumentation enhances student opportunities to perform chemical analyses which are important in environmental monitoring. Such instrumentation includes mass spectrometers, infrared and visible-ultraviolet spectrophotometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, gas-liquid chromatographs, and high-performance liquid chromatographs. In addition to opportunities to monitor air and surface-water quality, students also have the opportunity to monitor ground water; three wells have been drilled on campus specifically for that purpose. As industries recognize their responsibility to help create and maintain a sustainable environment, often achieving efficiencies in the process, they create positions dealing with waste management, pollution reduction, and other environmental responsibilities. Many UW-Green Bay Environmental Science graduates find employment in these industries or go on to advanced study in environmental science or other scientific disciplines. The following list represents some careers that have been pursued by Environmental Science graduates: agricultural scientist, botanist, ecologist, forest ranger, oceanographer, agricultural technician, engineering technician, forester, air and water quality manager, environmental analyst, park ranger, air pollution analyst, environmental consultant, environmental educator, geologist, project manager, environmental engineer, geophysicist, biologist, hazardous waste manager, hydrologist, environmental lawyer, chemical technician, soil conservation technician, chemist, management consultant, teacher, meteorologist, urban and regional planner, civil engineer, environmental planner, microbiologist/wastewater plant operator, natural resource specialist, wildlife manager, conservationist, zoologist.

Bachelors in Environmental Studies. ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE FORESTRY EMPHASIS The Associate of Science degree, with an emphasis in Forestry, provides students with an introduction to the technical and scientific knowledge related to the field of forestry and forest management. This set of classes satisfies the requirements for an Associate of Science degree and also meets the lower division requirements at Oregon State University (OSU) for a Bachelor of Science degree in Forestry. There is a signed articulation agreement with the Forestry Department at Oregon State University that allows students that complete this AS degree and two additional courses to enter OSU as a junior in the Forestry program. Beyond the AS degree requirements, students will need to take the Forest Biology course (FOR 240) from OSU which can be done online. In addition, students will need to take a Physics course which is not calculus based. Currently, SWOCC does not offer that course. The forestry field is projected to have many career opportunities coming up in the next decade as many forestry and natural resources professionals retire in the next few years. If you enjoy working outdoors and want to have a career that focuses on managing our valuable forest lands to conserve and protect resources as well as produce valuable products for society, this is an excellent time to consider this degree. PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon successful completion of this program the student will be able to: • Integrate technical field skills with analytical skills to identify important forest management challenges and identify potential solutions for these problems. • Explain and discuss important current issues, and social and political components of forest management in the United States and other countries. • Demonstrate basic skills in forest surveying, recreation management, soil science, remote sensing, geographic information systems, and spreadsheet applications. • Identify important tree species in the Pacific Northwest. GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Students must complete a minimum of 90 credit hours with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better. All courses in this program must be completed with a 'C' or better. Twenty-four (24) credits must be completed at SWOCC before the AS degree is awarded. This degree program can also satisfy the requirements of the AA/OT. Courses that are developmental in nature, designed to prepare students for college transfer courses, are not applicable to this degree. Complete the graduation application process one term prior to the term of completion (e.g., spring term graduates must apply during winter term). ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE NATURAL RESOURCES EMPHASIS The Natural Resources program provides students with an introduction to the technical and scientific knowledge related to natural resource policy and management. Students will obtain preparation for careers in natural resource planning, management, conservation and education roles with government agencies, non-governmental organizations and in educational settings. SWOCC now has a formal articulation agreement with Oregon State University to match the Associate of Science Natural Resources Emphasis degree with their Natural Resources Bachelor of Science degree program, focusing on the OSU Watershed Management option. Students that complete the AS degree with Natural Resources emphasis at SWOCC will have satisfied a large majority of the lower division courses required at OSU in their Natural Resources degree with Watershed Management option. Following completion of the AS Natural Resources Emphasis degree at SWOCC, the student would then transfer to OSU with 90 or more credit hours (up to 124 can be transferred). These courses, would all be articulated from SWOCC to OSU via the articulation agreement that has been prepared. The student would transfer to OSU and have Junior standing with only (1) the upper division Synthesis and WIC requirements of the Baccalaureate Core that would remain to be completed (all of the Skills, Perspective, and DPD categories would have been successfully completed), and (2) the mostly upper division courses associated with the Natural Resources degree program. The curriculum template on the next page lists the required courses for the AS degree, all of which satisfy a required course at OSU in that program, and also lists the extra courses that can be taken while at SWOCC that are also required at OSU for the Natural Resources degree with Watershed Management option. With those classes taken at SWOCC, a student can then enter OSU close to being full junior status in the Natural Resources Watershed option bachelor degree program. PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon successful completion of this program the student will be able to: • Integrate technical “field” skills with analytical skills to identify important natural resources problems and begin to identify effective solutions for these problems. • Acquire knowledge regarding a range of natural resources current issues, social and political components of resource management. • Work with experts in a variety of natural resource fields. • Apply watershed management principles and practices to actual natural resources issues and problems to develop plans and solutions. GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Students must complete a minimum of 103 credit hours with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better. All courses in this program must be completed with a 'C' or better. Twenty-four (24) credits must be completed at Southwestern before the AS degree is awarded. Courses that are developmental in nature, designed to prepare students for college transfer courses, are not applicable to this degree. Complete the graduation application process one term prior to the term of completion (e.g., spring term graduates must apply during winter term). [-]
