Conservation and Environmental Science

Natural resource conservationists and environmental scientists work to find solutions to environmental problems such as habitat destruction, species extinction, and contamination of air, water, and soil. These problems are complex; finding solutions requires the integration of biological, chemical, geological, geotechnical, educational, and social sciences.

The interdisciplinary undergraduate major in Conservation and Environmental Science draws from these diverse disciplines to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to analyze and solve environmental challenges. UWM’s CES graduates go on to create careers in business, industry, government, and the not-for-profit sector applying their knowledge, skills, and abilities to build a better and more sustainable world.
