Programs of Study

The University of Denver offers a variety of degree programs in environmental science. We offer the traditional Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees, as well as a number of five year, integrated bachelor's/master's degree programs.

Bachelor of Arts or Science Degrees

The bachelor's degrees in Environmental Science are designed to give students a strong foundation in the natural and physical sciences in order to better understand the science behind environmental issues and problems. These programs are designed to be completed in four years, and students are encouraged to participate in the Field Quarter as part of their curriculum.

Degree Requirements:

Bachelor of Arts, Environmental Science

Bachelor of Science, Environmental Science

Distinction in Environmental Science


Integrated Bachelor's/Master's Degrees

The Integrated Bachelor's/Master's Degree Program provides students with an opportunity to work on an undergraduate and graduate degree concurrently, thereby earning a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in five years (as opposed to the normal six years when both degrees are undertaken consecutively.) One of the benefits of this program is that students are able to apply financial aid awarded for their undergraduate course work toward their graduate course work. (Graduate financial assistance is often more difficult to obtain.)
