Welcome to the Office of Environmental Science
UTSA's Office of Environmental Science oversees two degree programs - a Bachelor's of Science in Environmental Science and a Master's of Science in Environmental Science. It is our goal that when our students complete their degrees, they will be prepared to work in the public or private sectors, or continue with their education for a more advanced degree.
Environmental Science is multidisciplinary; therefore, the degree programs offer a wide variety of courses. For the undergraduate degree, students take a core group of environmental classes including ecology, law, remediation, microbiology, toxicology, and global change. Support work includes classes in chemistry, physics, geology, geographical information systems, calculus, statistics, and computer programming. There is more flexibility with the Master's degree, with both a thesis and non-thesis option. The focuses are conservation and natural resources or environmental management.
We hope you will explore our web site and learn more about our office, students, and programs.
