Major Policies

Students majoring in Environmental Science should seek assistance in planning their program of study with an advisor in the department.

Transfer students must take a minimum of 12 biology credits (for Biology Concentration) or 12 geoscience/chemistry credits (for Geoscience-Chemistry Concentration) at Edgewood College.

Students with specific goals for careers or post-graduate study may be advised to take some courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison through Edgewood College’s Collaborative Program.

Biology Concentration students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher in ALL Biology courses used to fulfill the major requirements (courses listed on Degree Audit). Only Biology, Chemistry, Geoscience or Math courses in which the student receives a grade of CD or better will be accepted toward the major.

Completion of the Biology Concentration includes participation in independent research. Each Biology Concentration student will present his/her research project in the Biology Seminar (BIO 480). Biology concentration students should consult with their advisor about this requirement at the time that the major is declared.
