Environmental Studies

During an era when the world is facing a wide range of environmental problems that are in the news virtually every day, Environmental Studies has become a particularly timely and important program.

Our Environmental Studies program provides an opportunity for the systematic investigation of the natural world and the interaction of humans with their own environment. Environmental issues and conflicts of this century are highly complex and transcend traditional academic disciplines. The goal of the environmental studies program at UC is to provide the interdisciplinary training and conceptual framework required to analyze and respond to the complex and dynamic environmental problems of the modern world.

Where It Will Take You

Baccalaureate degree graduates in environemntal studies can expect to be prepared for entry-level and technician positions in a wide variety of careers, including ecologists, zoologists, hazardous waste managers or even park rangers. In addition, environmental studies graduates are well prepared for admissions into graduate-level education necessary for most professional and research-based careers.

Transition-Oriented Program

The environmental sciences major at UC Blue Ash College provides the first two years of an anticipated baccalaureate program following transfer to an accredited college or university. While most students elect to continue their education with UC McMicken College of Arts and Sciences, the program is designed to articulate with other universities as well. Students completing the program of study in environmental studies are eligible for an associate of science degree. Learn more about transition-oriented programs.
