Environmental Science at Messiah College

If you care about the responsible stewardship of creation, this hands-on major gives you the chance to “do” environmental science with other Christians.

As an environmental science major at Messiah College, you’ll have the unique opportunity to practice science with other Christians who also care about being responsible stewards of creation.  Study subjects like environmental ethics, ecological field techniques and plant taxonomy; participate in a wide variety of other related opportunities such as internships, field research, on-site restorations and clubs as you prepare for your future career in areas like stream and landscape restoration, wetland delineation, wildlife management, forestry, parks and recreation management, sustainable agriculture, agricultural missions work, environmental education, and even teaching science. 

At Messiah, you not only learn science--you will also “do” science. You won’t just study the theory of science but also practice its application. And by combining this strong foundation of scientific knowledge and methods with a Christian perspective about God’s creation and your place in it, our innovative, hands-on curriculum, field work, internships, restoration projects, research, study abroad and more will prepare you to make a real and lasting difference in the world.
