Undergraduate Curriculum Information

Two Environmental Engineering degree options are offered at Yale.

  1. B.S. in Environmental Engineering: This degree is for students who desire a strong background in environmental engineering leading to a career in the field.
  2. B.A. in Engineering Sciences (Environmental): This degree is intended for students whose careers will involve, but not be dominated by, the skills of environmental engineering. The B.A. program is appropriate for those contemplating a career in which scientific and technological problems can play an important role, as is often the case in law, business, medicine, or public service.

Examples of typical course sequences are presented below.  Consultation with the program’s Director of Undergraduate Studies is expected to ensure the correct courses are taken by each enrolled student.
