(Per CHED Memorandum Order No. 35, Series of 2005 and Board Resolution No. 14, Series of 2007) Environmental Science seeks to study the environment and the impact of human society on it using the tools of science in an interdisciplinary way. There are three characteristic of environment science. First, its primary objective is to use the various sciences in the study of environment. Second, it is based in the sciences but its approach is interdisciplinary. Thus, it employs the scientific method as its principal framework, and applies whichever science is needed to the study of the environment. Third, it also recognizes the very important role that human society has in environment. Environmental Science, therefore, is a vital tool in laying down the groundwork for the effective management of the environment.
