lmkh, I am not sure where you live, but in NJ, Rutgers offers a Environmental Science Program. I considered it when I first entered Rutgers, however after doing bad in General Chem(I did great at the Lab, did terribly in the Lectures) I decided I'm not going to waste my time. Anyway it's a good major, however, most careers require a Masters at least, and from what I've seen, the entry level work is less than desirable. Sure during school, you get to go to all the fun field trips, however I was talking to my advisor at the time, and he said that beginners usually start out doing mudlogging and other undesirable grunt work. Something else your daughter can consider is Geology. Geology also combines all the sciences(physics, chemistry, biology) and is a stronger program than Environmental Sciences, and it offers better job opportunities, although beginning work is still on the undesirable side, unless you get a internship with corporations like Exxon Mobil, which hires lots of engineers and geologists, in their oil exploration field.
