About

The Bachelor in Environmental Studies at Mount Holyoke College is concerned with the interactions between people and their environment, the effects the environment has on people, and the impact of human activities on the environment.

Overview

The Bachelor in Environmental Studies at Mount Holyoke College is inherently interdisciplinary. One cannot understand their origin, impact, or potential solutions without analyzing the behavior of natural systems, as well as their interaction with economic, political, and cultural factors.

The environmental studies major provides students with an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of environmental issues and includes courses from:

  • the humanities
  •  natural sciences
  •  social sciences. 

The program is concerned with the interactions between people and their environment, the effects the environment has on people, and the impact of human activities on the environment.

Department Learning Goals

Environmental Studies is a cross-divisional department with natural science, social science, humanities, and interdisciplinary courses. Our students learn about the origins and impacts of, as well as potential solutions to, environmental issues by studying the behavior of natural systems and their interactions with political, economic, social, and cultural factors.

Because the study of environmental concerns is inherently interdisciplinary, students develop a broad foundation of knowledge and integrative thinking skills in their time at Mount Holyoke College. Environmental Studies majors graduate with the intellectual tools and breadth of understanding to confront environmental challenges of the present and future.
