Environmental scientists try to identify, understand and respond to challenging issues that affect the quality of our environment. These issues include air and water pollution, climate change and the preservation of plants, animals and ecosystems threatened by human activities. The program is aimed at students whose interests lie in working on environmental problems from a scientist’s perspective.
STANDOUT FEATURES OF UT'S COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES AND MATHEMATICS:
• Low faculty-to-student ratio - Most of our students work one-on-one with faculty members, which can lead to great recommendation letters for jobs or graduate school.
• Masters and Ph.D. programs in every major - Our college offers strong graduate programs, if students want to continue their education. The presence of graduate degrees in each major also boosts the prestige of the undergraduate programs.
• Longest-running exchange program - Students have the chance to spend a semester or year at the University of Salford in England, while those students come to UT and enrich our programs with an international perspective.
• Top-notch labs, spaces and equipment - We have some of the premier science facilities on campus — greenhouses, wet and dry labs, an arboretum, the Lake Erie Center on the banks of the lake and the Ritter Planetarium, which was fully renovated in 2011 - just to name a few.
• More chances for undergraduate research - We help students get into the lab and start researching with faculty members as undergraduates, whereas some schools don't offer this until graduate school.
