Environmental Science is a broad and interdisciplinary field primarily concerned with the interrelationships between the lithosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, and the biosphere. It integrates diverse scientific disciplines such as biology, chemistry, physics, geology, hydrology, atmospheric science, oceanography, and toxicology. Environmental science also touches on many other disciplines such as engineering, psychology, economics, communications, business, and public policy. Environmental science is very inclusive, because we all interact with the environment every single day and it is so critical to our survival.

Kennesaw State University's Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science provides students a truly interdisciplinary program drawing on faculty expertise and existing courses in the natural sciences, engineering technology, policy, and law. Students completing this program are prepared to enter into industry, consulting, state agencies, or advanced professional programs in the environmental sciences. Graduates will be educated in assessment and control of pollutants, remediation and restoration of toxic sites, sustainable development, management and conservation of natural resources, and conducting environmental research.
