New Environmental Studies Major Offered

Beginning in fall 2022, Dominican University will offer a new Environmental Studies major.  Environmental studies is a growing field with many job opportunities.

Regina Alvarez, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology, said that students can opt for one of two tracks – a science track or a general track.  “Students who do the science track can go to graduate school, can do research, or they can get technical jobs in the environmental field,” she said.  Students who take the general track would be more interested in working with government policies, or being an environmental consultant, an activist, a lobbyist, or an educator. 

Students in both tracks will earn a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies degree.  For more information about the Environmental Studies program, click here.
