Clark’s undergraduate Environmental Science Program draws from the expertise of faculty and departments from across campus, addressing the physical, biological, geographical, and management and policy aspects of the natural environment. As a major or minor in this interdisciplinary program, you will examine environmental challenges from all academic perspectives — the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities — and from the perspective of action and change.
Welcome to the Environmental Science Program
Put your learning into practice. Get outside and examine natural environments, take part in research projects, intern at environmental organizations, explore diverse places and spaces, and take action on and off campus.
Research in environmental science spans a wide range of academic fields. Conduct research on your own or as part of a team in collaboration with your peers, faculty, graduate students, alumni, and our broader networks.
Careers and Internships in Environmental Science
We help our majors secure internships and research experiences with a wide variety of organizations and institutions, in part by leveraging our extensive networks. Our graduates pursue graduate school and careers in science, government, business, consulting, and education.
