DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - N.C. Central University will be offering a new major to its students beginning next fall.

The school says it will offer an Environment and Geographic Sciences major beginning in fall 2015 following recent approval by the UNC Board of Governors of the new program for the College of Arts and Sciences.

Carlton Wilson, dean of the college of Arts and Sciences, says the degree will provide a comprehensive approach for students planning careers as environmentalists and geoscientists.

In 2011-2012, NCCU reviewed its sciences programs and decided to combine the individual majors of environmental and geographic science into one degree program to better prepare students for graduate school or employment in geo-spatial science.

Wilson said the faculty will work with area agencies and industries to provide internships for students.
