Our major will give you the extensive and broad preparation necessary to enter a career with governmental agencies, environmental organizations, the forestry service, or other environmental professions.
Each year our majors attend and often present original research at the Association of Southeastern Biologists conference.
Most of your environmental studies courses will have a strong outdoor component—you’ll experience environmental science by getting into the field to observe natural areas and collect data.
You’ll study and collaborate with faculty whose research interests include fire ecology, ecotoxicology, herpetology, science and religion, rose genetics, parasites, and paleoecology.
The Biology Department sponsors chapters of Beta Beta Beta, a national society for students in the biological sciences, and AMSA/Pre-Professional Society, the national organization for pre-medical and medical students, interns, residents and practicing physicians.
Our Environmental Studies majors attend a wide variety of graduate and professional schools.
Florida Southern College has a Cooperative College 3-2 Program with Duke University in which students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Environmental Studies can obtain a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in a total of five years.
Full details about the program including admission requirements, curriculum, and course descriptions can be found in the academic catalog.
