Overview

Humankind has used technological advances to exploit the environment to its benefit, with the consequence of introducing pollution and environmental damage. This Domain considers the interface between the environment and human well-being, with particular focus on the triad that ties human health to the environment through the elements of food and infectious agents. Each of these elements is influenced by planned and unplanned environmental disturbances. For example, the distribution of infectious diseases is influenced by the climatic conditions that permit vectors to coexist with humans, by deforestation, by urbanization, and by human interventions ranging from the building of dams to provision of potable water.

You can choose from two streams of study within this domain: Population and Cellular. In the Population concentration you will gain a depth of understanding at an ecosystem level that looks at society, land, and population health. In the Cellular concentration you will explore these interactions in more depth, at a physiological level.

This domain can only be taken as part of the Environment major.


Careers

Students who pursue an environmental science degree have many options when it comes to jobs and may work in a variety of settings.

Possible minors

Minors are a great way to customize your academic experience. Many students use minors to pursue interests outside their major, while others choose minors to complement their degree.
