Southeast Missouri State University
Environmental Science Program
Environmental issues have effects on a broad spectrum of businesses and industries.
Also, there are a large number of businesses and consulting firms that specialize in
environmental fields. The direct and indirect impacts of environmental concerns on the
economy are large and growing.
Traditionally, students have received university training in either business or
environmental science, but not both. Southeast is pleased to offer a program that
recognizes the close relationship between the environment and business. Furthermore,
completion of the business option curriculum will qualify students for admission
into, and rapid completion of, a M.B.A. degree program. There are relatively few academic
programs in the country that combine business and environmental science training and
graduates with these combined backgrounds should be highly marketable.
Environmental issues affecting business frequently become legal issues. There is a
societal need for individuals trained in business, environmental science and law. The
course of study of the environmental science major is designed to prepare interested
students for post-graduate training in environmental law.
Graduates in this option are anticipated to be successful in finding employment in the
environmental field and to be highly competitive for admission to graduate programs in
business and environmental sciences, as well as, law school programs.

Employment in government, business, industry, and consulting firms; advanced study in
