Students planning on Minoring in Environmental Science should major in either Biology or Chemistry and develop a course selection carefully designed to assist in meeting career goals. Because Environmental Science is an applied field, students are strongly encouraged to include in their programs an internship or practicum at one of the institutions with which Maryville College maintains a research arrangement.
Students are also encouraged to examine the very differently focused Major in Environmental Studies, a major based in the social sciences and serving a variety of careers related to environmental policy and management.
All students pursuing this minor are also strongly encouraged to seek a relevant summer internship (significant practical experience their sophomore or junior summer) as well as conduct a Senior Study involving some aspect of ecology, biology, wildlife, fisheries, environmental science or earth sciences (geology, hydrology, soil science).
Maryville College Works is a comprehensive career preparation program that is integrated into the College’s four-year liberal arts curriculum. Key components include assessment, advising, networking and professional experiences.
The Maryville Curriculum, often called the “core” curriculum, consists of 51 credit hours. Some general education requirements are completed by virtue of the student’s major; others may be met by demonstration of competence. Note that some courses meet requirements in more than one domain.
