Protect the environment.
Understand human impacts on environmental systems and learn strategies for mitigating and remediating environmental harm. With the environmental science minor, you will learn scientific techniques and conduct hands-on field and laboratory investigations of environmental systems. You will also participate in independent research with faculty mentors and an internship with an outside agency. Get your hands dirty and your feet wet as you work at Worcester State’s new research facility at nearby Patch Reservoir, using the program’s canoes and suite of environmental sensors.
