Making the world a better place

I am currently attending community college and trying to strictly complete general ed requirements so I can transfer. I don't really have a major but I am interested in Environmental Engineering. I love math but I don't like science. Would majoring in Environmental Engineering be a good decision still? I love and care for the environment and really want to do something that'll make the world a better place; have a direct impact on improving the Earth's future and all its inhabitants.

    Environmental engineering is a combination of math and science. Courses required in environmental engineering are heavily involved in science. I would consider why you do not like science when evaluating your decision to pursue environmental engineering. Since you are just taking general education it might be difficult to see the connection between your science courses and your career. If you really do like environmental engineering you will most likely enjoy your courses despite being related to science.
