Environmental Studies Curriculum

Environmental Studies stands at the intersection of many diverse fields – such as biology, chemistry, economics, English, and political science – bound together by a focus on the impact of humankind on ecological systems. Students complete a common core of courses and experiences which focus on experiential and service-learning as well as building environmental literacy, multidisciplinary problem-solving skills, and a community of environmentally-oriented students and faculty. Students leave the program with an understanding and appreciation of the natural world, the interconnectedness between social and natural systems, and tools for making positive contributions to environmental sustainability.
