Read short profiles about our incredible undergraduate students in our department.
Inspired by her experience in the STEM fields, Nyah Maria Torres (BS Environmental Science '22) wants to solve complex environmental issues.
Researching if native desert plant species growing in storm water drainage basins are dangerous for human consumption, Jaden Iñiguez (BS Environmental Science ‘21) is on her way to creating solutions to protect both our earth and our communities.
Inspired by her international travels in the military and exposure to environmental issues, Monicka LaShawn Raybon (BS Environmental Science’ 22) is pursuing her online environmental degree while stationed abroad in England.
As a first-generation college student and Diné (Navajo), Samantha Yazzie (BS Environmental Science '20) decided on an environmental science degree because she didn’t want her young family members growing up in a polluted world. Her independent study project investigates the potential of carbon sequestration, the capturing and storing of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to mitigate climate change, on the Navajo Nation.
Anna Jones (BS Environmental Science '23) first learned about research by helping graduate students work on their theses. Now, she works in a lab that uses analytical and geochemical techniques to better understand issues like climate change, aiming to inspire the next generation of scientists.
Currently working in finance and getting her online degree in environmental science, Melanie Swanson (BS Environmental Science '21) wants to pivot her career—motivated to make an impact on the conservation of wildlife and the environment.
No matter your dream job, it takes dedication and perseverance. Jordan Camp (BS Environmental Science ‘20) knows this with his camera in one hand and a soon-to-be diploma in the other. With a love of environmental education and photography, Camp sees his environmental science major as a stepping stone to his aspiring career at the National Park Service.
Research opens doors for growth and innovation, even at field stations over 100 years old. Ella Kaufman (BS Environmental Science '22) can attest to this with her internship on rangeland management at the Santa Rita Experimental Range just south of Tucson.
