Programs of Study


OSU Environmental Science Undergraduate Coursework

The environmental science program offers students a broad-based science curriculum that incorporates how society and the environment impact one another. Upper division courses include problem-solving studies in water and soil quality, economics, political science, and resource management. In addition, students gain important skills in the general education areas of communication, philosophy, ethics, and sociology.

All Oklahoma State University students take general education classes (on the left side of a degree sheet). All environmental science students take a block of core courses, but some additional courses are chosen based upon the student's option. The three options include natural resources, environmental policy, and water resources.
