The Environmental Studies program introduces the student to an interdisciplinary experience focusing on local, regional and global environmental challenges. The student will develop an understanding of the relationships between humans and the natural world from the scientific and humanities perspectives. Students will be familiar with the scientific basis of major environmental issues and their possible solutions. Further, students will be able to apply the analytical methods and theoretical perspectives of the social sciences to the issues of environmental problems, management, and policies.

The Environmental Studies program offers a 20 credit minor in Environmental Studies, and an Individualized Plan of Study Major.
