The interdisciplinary bachelor of science in environmental science & policy creates scientists who can communicate with policy makers and future policy makers who understand science.
»Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science & Policy
Environmental science & policy students complete core course work in both the natural and social sciences, and then choose to specialize in one of the following:
- Earth systems
- Environmental policy
Opportunities for student/faculty research as well as internships with community partners add even more flexibility to this degree program and allow students to customize their Chapman experience.
+-Where can this degree take you?
Alumni from this program have gone on to graduate programs in conservation biology, environmental chemistry and environmental law. Others have accepted positions with consulting firms, environmental non-profits and research-based agencies.
Our faculty are top researchers in their fields and explore issues ranging from pollution over megacities, the effects of invasive plant species on ecosystem processes, the characterization of heavy metals in mine waste, and the impact of presidential transitions on environmental law.
This work is supported by research grants from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the Fulbright Program. Environmental Science & Policy students routinely engage in these cutting-edge research questions.
Dr. Jason Keller is an ecologist broadly interested in the flow of carbon and nutrients through ecosystems. Much of his work explores how ecosystems will respond to ongoing global change.
