Environmental Science and Policy, BS
Our Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science & Policy integrates natural sciences and social sciences to address complex environmental issues.
Students committed to understanding our natural and human environments, developing sustainability plans, or those interested in more effectively managing our natural resources.
While completing an ES&P degree, students have the flexibility to specialize in nearly anything related to the natural or human environment, but all come out with a core set of analysis, mapping, and research skills.
Through a Capstone project, ES&P students build a deep portfolio of the work completed during their time at SOU, demonstrating how they have fulfilled the ES&P degree requirements, and setting them up for a successful launch to their career after graduation.

I work at a solar development startup, called SolAgra. I do research, project management and communications. I joined the ES program because the subject was interesting to me and I liked the teachers. I got a lot out of the program that I actually use in my job today.
The professors in the Environmental Studies program prepared me for the social and technical challenges of conservation in Southern Oregon with their diverse curriculum and professional, caring faculty. Probably the greatest skill I gained at SOU was the ability to think critically and write clearly and scientifically.
