About the Bachelor of Science Degree Programs

The School of Public and Environmental Affairs recognizes the complex problems facing our society such as global warming, hazardous waste, escalating health care costs, balance of trade, and international relations. Through the three bachelor of science degree programs, the school develops its students’ problem-solving abilities and organizational skills so that they may contribute possible solutions to these and other problems.

More than ever, people who take on leadership roles in society—whether as professionals or volunteers—need formal training in managing staff, fiscal resources, information, public relations and marketing, and technology. With its focus on managing resources and solving problems, the Bachelor of Science in Public Affairs (B.S.P.A.) degree prepares students for careers in diverse areas such as federal, state, and local politics and administration; public policy evaluation; management consulting; public relations; management of nonprofit organizations; and monitoring, assessment, and amelioration of environmental problems— to name only a few. Majors in the degree program include: management, legal studies, public and nonprofit management, policy analysis, public financial management, and environmental management. Students who choose to continue with their education after earning an undergraduate degree frequently study law, planning, public affairs, environmental science, or business administration.

There is a critical need for scientists who can incorporate their expertise into policies that address environmental concerns, such as global climate change, pollution of water and air, conservation of endangered species and habitats, urban sprawl, and human illnesses caused by environmental problems. To meet that need, the School of Public and Environ­mental Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences inaugurated the Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science (B.S.E.S.) degree, a unique cooperative program between two leading schools at Indiana University. Designed as a rigorous interdisciplinary science curriculum, the degree prepares students either for direct entry into an environ­mental science career or for graduate study in the traditional sciences or environmental science.

Both government and private organizations are seeking ways to maintain or improve the quality of health care in the United States. At the same time, there is an increasing need to control skyrocketing costs. The Bachelor of Science in Public Health (B.S.P.H.) prepares students to meet those challenges. The Health Administration major prepares students for health management careers by developing their organizational, analytical, managerial, and leadership skills. Graduates often pursue careers in the public, private, or nonprofit sector in areas such as public health, environmental health, health administration, epidemiology, or health policy and planning. B.S.P.H. students have gone on for post-baccalaureate training in diverse areas such as public health, health administration, public affairs, law, business administration, and environmental science and policy.

Minors

Any Indiana University student enrolled in a bachelor’s program may pursue one or more of the minors offered by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Individuals interested in one or more of these minors should inquire in the SPEA undergraduate advising office (SPEA 240) for additional details. Students should check with their degree-granting unit to make sure they are eligible for the SPEA minor of their choice. SPEA’s multidisciplinary faculty and curricula address environmental, health, public policy, and management issues from a variety of perspectives. A minor in SPEA can enhance career opportunities for liberal arts and other majors.

General Policies and Procedures
Each minor requires 15 hours of specified courses with a 2.00 grade point average, and none of the courses may be taken by correspondence through the School of Continuing Studies. Students may only double-count 6 of the required 15 credit hours in other SPEA major or minor requirements. Students may earn up to three minors from SPEA, but each minor must have at least 9 hours that are not satisfying other major or minor requirements.

The following minor areas are available on the Bloomington campus:

Public and Environmental Affairs
Environmental Management
Environmental Science and Health
Health Systems Administration
