Advanced Environmental Science Elective courses
The four advanced environmental science elective courses to complete the major are listed below. The list includes only the lecture course code for each of the required courses. Students should must also complete the lab co-requisite for courses that have one (e.g., BISC 2539 General Genetics, BISC 3643 Microbiology, CHEM 2522 Organic Chemistry II, CHEM 3622 Physical Chemistry II, NSCI 2142 Paleoecology Lecture, NSCI 3122 Organic Chemistry Lecture II, NSCI 4143 Advanced Microbiology Lecture).
Courses with the code BISC or CHEM are offered at the Rose Hill campus, while courses with the code NSCI are offered at the Lincoln Center campus. Students may not receive credit for taking equivalent/mutually exclusive courses on each campus.

The major in environmental science is available at Fordham College at Rose Hill and Fordham College at Lincoln Center. Students in Fordham's School of Professional and Continuing Studies may major in environmental science only if they receive the approval of their advising dean and/or department, and their schedules are sufficiently flexible to permit them to take day courses at the Rose Hill or Lincoln Center campuses.
Fordham College at Rose Hill students: The requirements above are in addition to those of the Core Curriculum.
Fordham College at Lincoln Center students: The requirements above are in addition to those of the Core Curriculum.
Professional and Continuing Studies students: The requirements above are in addition to those of the PCS Core Curriculum and any additional electives that may be required to earn a minimum of 124 credits.
