The B.S. program has two emphases: Environmental Science and Resource Management. Historically these two disciplines have been poorly integrated and taught as distinct endeavors with their own traditions to serve somewhat different constituencies. Our program here at CSU Channel Islands prepares graduates specializing in Environmental Science who understand both the basic principles of Resource Management, and graduates specializing in Resource Management who understand basic principles of Environmental Science. Most required courses are those offered in related disciplines with 72% of the requirements for the major occurring in other programs (Chemistry, Economics, etc.). Our curriculum fosters cross-disciplinary communication in the several required courses common to both emphases and particularly in our upper division ESRM courses.
