Many of the critical dilemmas that threaten our world today, such as global climate change, challenges and conflict over shrinking natural resources, human health effects from toxic exposures, have environmental underpinnings. Addressing these problems requires a truly interdisciplinary approach, calling upon understanding and tools from across the university. Environmental studies prepares students to tackle these issues through rigorous coursework in the natural and social sciences, including economics, law, policy, history, ecology and physical sciences.
We emphasize hands-on learning through field-based courses. Students work directly with community partners to address current issues facing local communities, and are placed in individually tailored internships where they work alongside environmental professionals. Students also master research, report writing, oral communication, advocacy, geographic information systems (GIS) mapping, website development and problem-solving skills. Many students undertake field studies abroad with our partner programs, and/or participate in our signature immersive, integrated semester programs, the Environmental Field Semester and the Environmental Health and Justice program.
