Briar Cliff ’s Franciscan heritage includes an emphasis on a respect for and stewardship of the natural world. Finding solutions to minimize adverse impacts by humans on our environment requires an interdisciplinary approach. Responsible environmentalists desiring to solve problems such as pollution, habitat destruction, and the loss of biological diversity must be fluent in both the natural sciences (including biology, chemistry, earth science) and socially relevant disciplines (such as sociology and political science). Students majoring in Environmental Science will choose an emphasis in either Biology or Chemistry. Students will have the opportunity to pursue internships and to participate in extended field trips that provide opportunities for pursuing practical applications of classroom instruction.
