Environmental Science Program
The DBU Environmental Science program, leading to a Bachelor of Science degree, includes a range of courses which prepare graduates for a career in environmentally related problem-solving vocations. This is a science degree providing a systematic study of God’s created environment. It includes courses in math, chemistry, physics, biology, air, soils and water pollution to provide an overall understanding of the many factors which lead to environmental issues and their solutions. Since most environmental issues deal with human activities, the study of economics, Christian ethics, law, and social sciences will be covered in conjunction with the required science topics.
Environmental Science Mission Statement
The Department of Environmental Science will provide an academically enriched environment in order to partner with the students in their intellectual and spiritual development to acquire a sense of personal responsibility for their success in academics and in Christian stewardship of sustainable environmental systems throughout God’s creation. The Department will identify ongoing emerging Environmental Science knowledge, principles, and applications to prepare scientific scholars grounded in spiritual principles and who are thus able to excel and serve in their chosen field.
