About the Major

Environmental Science at Ohio Wesleyan is an interdisciplinary, natural science approach to the environment within the context of the liberal arts. Diverse courses provide you with an integrative, scientific understanding of the environment with an emphasis on approaches to addressing current environmental challenges.

Once you've taken your core classes, you can explore the environment through upper-level natural science courses in a wide range of disciplines. You'll gain a whole-organism focus with courses that will prepare you for graduate studies in science. And every major will complete a capstone project.
