Undergraduate Program

Our undergraduate program emphasizes a breadth of training. You will take courses that integrate understanding across many disciplines. At the same time, students need to develop a depth of expertise in a specific area. So, our majors are secondary majors, and our minor is designed to complement any major.

We also stress the importance of hands-on research and internship experiences. You will have opportunities to work with our partners to help solve real-life problems relevant to the Chesapeake Bay and beyond.

Many of our students are co-authors on professional publications and presentations. As a consequence, some of our alumni go on to careers with government agencies, environmental consultancies, and action groups. Others secure places in some of the best graduate schools in the U.S.
