Bluffton University to offer new environmental science major


The Bluffton University Nature Preserve will be a learning laboratory for the new environmental science major.


Starting in fall 2024, Bluffton University students will have the opportunity to major in environmental science. Housed in the department of health sciences, natural sciences and mathematics, the program will provide students a broader understanding of the natural and built worlds around them through classes in biology, chemistry, geology, and soil, water and climate sciences. 

“This major offers a pathway for students to become not just environmental scientists, plant and wildlife biologists, and conservationists, but also concerned citizens of the world who have a clearer understanding of the issues we face and potential solutions to them,” said Dr. Jacob Buchanan, who will oversee the program as M’Della Moon Endowed Chair in Botany and Environmental Science.
