Environmental chemistry is an interdisciplinary science that combines the study of chemistry with other fields like statistics and biology. As an environmental chemistry major at Catholic University, you will take a variety of science course in order to create a more complete understanding of how the presence of human beings affects the world in which we live.

In addition to your science courses, The Catholic University of America's core liberal arts curriculum will shape your knowledge of history, civilization, and ethics. This knowledge will prepare you to become an advocate for our planet and its resources. Whether you choose to work for a commercial laboratory, join a non-profit organization, or pursue a graduate degree, you will have the tools to make a difference.
