Pathways in Physical Science & Sustainability

 

Students interested in physical science and sustainability become experts who help minimize and manage waste and pollution, protecting the air, water, soil, and ourselves from harmful chemicals. They often coordinate these activities through a multidisciplinary focus, as they integrate the interconnected ideals of viable ecological integrity, viable economies, and equity and justice in their work.
