Environmental Science

All Majors


Bryan College is proud to offer an Environmental Science major as a new addition to our catalog. As an Environmental Science major, you will learn on a large scale how God's creation works and how humanity interacts with it. You will learn about geological, chemical and biological processes, biodiversity, ecosystems, renewable and nonrenewable resources, weather systems and patterns, and philosophical considerations of science and Christianity. You will also investigate environmental ethics and learn to answer questions such as:
  • Is Christianity to blame for the current ecological crisis?
  • Is human population growth something to be concerned about?
  • What roles do renewable energy resources play in our future?
  • Is global climate change an issue Christians should become involved with?
You will be encouraged to apply your knowledge and skills to real life situations in order to have a positive impact for Christ on our world and culture.
