Three options are available for students:

Our graduates are the scientists, conservationists, and problem solvers who work with consulting firms, government agencies and non-profit organizations to solve today's environmental issues all across the globe.

The Environmental Resource Management (ERM) major is an interdisciplinary, environmental science curriculum that trains students to use problem-solving, decision-making, and communication skills to solve environmental and resource management issues. It is one of the premier environmental science programs in the nation and has been preparing students for more than 35 years to successfully and creatively analyze, manage, and protect the environmental resources of Pennsylvania, the nation, and the world.

An ERM degree also can provide an excellent foundation for either graduate school in the environmental and natural resource sciences or for advanced professional training in environmental law.

ERM's interdisciplinary approach makes use of an outstanding faculty from many departments to advise and teach students.
