Environmental Science and Environmental Studies
Degree Options:
  • Minor

Integrated and interdisciplinary, these programs are offered for students who want an in-depth study of the various ethical, legal, political, economic and scientific factors that are involved in human interaction with the environment.

Our environmental programs are largely hands-on, with expert faculty leading students around the natural ecosystems found in Seguin and the Texas Hill Country. From rugged canyons, to wetlands and loblolly pine forests to the Gulf of Mexico, TLU has prime access to a variety of environmental havens for study and research.

Degree Options

There are many opportunities to actively participate in original research projects alongside faculty members in various departments. Additionally each senior participates in a semester-long seminar series, where they will create and present their own original research project.

TLU's Irvin G. Patterson Biology Station at Lake McQueeney allows students to gain crucial field research experience at the Guadalupe River. The station includes reservoir access and state-of-the-art equipment. Environmental programs students can also participate in study abroad programs focused on tropical biology and environmental studies in Central and South America.

Students can also take leadership roles in local conservation and sustainability by joining EnACT, TLU’s environmental action club, and serving on the university’s sustainability committee.
