    Why Environmental Science?

    Study the environment, its make-up, and its challenges. We focus on the processes that shape the Earth's surface, control the chemistry of air and water, and produce the resources on which we all depend. The curriculum provides motivated students a comprehensive background in the field. At graduation, they compete for positions in the private sector, government, and academia. Or, they continue their education at the graduate level.

    Our Place in the Environment

    The Brockport campus is near several locations that are rich with opportunities for study. Areas include forested woodlots, the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, Bergen Swamp, and Lake Ontario. Students can study amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and fish near campus. Our concentrations stress collaborative study with faculty as well as internships. Each provides a hands-on approach while developing a working knowledge of sophisticated analytical instrumentation.
