Students minoring in environmental science at Saint Louis University will learn how the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere interact with each other in the natural world, how human activities influence the environment, and how people are affected by the ever-changing environment.
Environmental science encompasses the study of Earth’s environment, which is comprised of these spheres, with emphasis on human interactions with them. The environmental science program is designed so students first gain a thorough foundation of knowledge in all spheres and then focus more on one or more sub-disciplines like soil, water, energy or climate change.
