Students are prepared to pursue a wide variety of career paths and post-graduate degrees in environmental science, especially those with biological and physical science specializations.

As several of the requirements for the co-major overlap the requirements for degrees in Microbiology, the co-major is an attractive academic option for Microbiology majors interested in microbial ecology and environmental microbiology.

The Institute for the Environment & Sustainability also offers co-majors in Energy and in Sustainability
