Top enviromental science schools in the northeast
title pretty much says it all im just curious if any of you guys have info on the envriomental science major. looking for mostly schools in the northeast, maybe some outwest.
Assume you like to ski as well.... middlebury, uvm, colorado college all have good programs. middlebury is a trap and way too hard
Top schools are top schools. If you have the accolades to get into a true top school, that will do you much, much more than some perceived "good" program. While Princeton for example may not be specifically known for its Environmental Science program, that name on your resume will carry you places that other schools will not.
For Undergrad in particular, go to the best school you can get into and your family can afford. When it comes to grad school, and if you are specializing in a particular niche of Environmental Science, that is the time to look for a specific program and a specific professor.
SUNY ESF is the one Environmental School that comes to mind. It's a decent school, is known for Environmental Science, and it's part of a very large university complex with Syracuse University right there. However, the major downside is living in Syracuse for four years.
Unity College in Unity, ME. Small school, but the only school in the country that's 100% focused on environmental sustainability. Really awesome place if that's what you're looking for.
UMaine has a pretty sweet Climate Science program
Nunavut Arctic College. Very north and very east
The prestigious University of Rhode Island
If you have any questions on UVM environmental science lmk
Environmental science majors of NS, could you help me with a few questions?
Was your choice to pursue environmental science motivated by a love of science or research or mainly just by a desire to spend more time outdoors in your career/major?
What career are you pursuing with this degree, or planning to pursue?
What does the average salary look like, from your experience?
What does your day-to-day look like in this field? Which parts are enjoyable or not enjoyable?
Did you go to school for 4 years or did you get your masters?
Thanks in advance, and sorry for hijacking the thread a little bit. If any one of you guys could answer a few of these questions I would greatly appreciate it. Currently a freshman in college, undecided as could be. I was interested in environmental science but I pretty much dismissed it after an experience at a major exploration event on campus. Looking to give it a second chance and hear some different view points because it remains a victor in many ways compared to the other major i'm most interested in (graphic design).
There are def a bunch of really good schools with really good environmental science programs in the northeast (like Middlebury, Bates, Colby, Colgate, etc). I was pretty much looking for the same thing with a decent skiing/outdoors community and ended up at St. Lawrence University. I think it's a really good balance of academics, skiing, social, etc and would recommend it, but it's def dependent on what you're looking for and where you can get in and afford. As far as ski community uvm is def the best in the east and also has a good envs program
All times are Eastern (-5)
