A Bachelor’s of Science in environmental science is an interdisciplinary effort of the departments of biology, chemistry and physics. The purpose of the program is to prepare graduates for a professional career in environmental science or entrance into a graduate program.
Students in Bradley’s environmental science program work directly with faculty. Most undergraduates have the opportunity to work independently on a reading and/or research project under the supervision of a faculty member, and receive credit toward graduation. Normally this is completed during the junior and senior years, and qualified students may earn credit toward graduation. Students have had their work published or have presented their research at national conferences.
Some of the specialized interests of Bradley’s Environmental Science faculty include:
• population biology
• plant ecology
• behavior of animals
• thermodynamics and the stabilization of hazardous materials
• transition metal chemistry
• materials science
