During Commencement, it is so exciting to be reminded of how much students have developed during their time at the University.


As an environmental science major at Mount Union, you will learn to address environmental issues through an approach that emphasizes hands-on field and laboratory experiences.  You will experience in-depth training in one selected field of science – chemistry, geology or biology – in preparation for a rewarding career.

And, this is a field that is in demand.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs for environmental scientists is expected to grow much faster than the average throughout the course of this decade. The environment is a hot topic in today’s society, and more and more people are becoming involved in fixing the environmental problems that are plaguing our environment.  Also, as the world’s population continues to grow, it will require more work to keep our environment clean, and stricter laws may be enacted that demand businesses and governments to hire scientists to ensure they are in compliance.
