In both degree programs, students develop a solid understanding of ecological principles enhanced by knowledge of related economic, social, cultural, political, legal and ethical issues. They consider environmental issues from many perspectives, exploring the balance between human needs and human impacts on ecosystems as they compare the natural environment to the built-environment. Then they apply that knowledge through real-world experiences and fieldwork. By graduation, students are prepared to carry those critical skills into any of a number of postgraduate opportunities or career possibilities.
The Environmental Studies major (B.S. degree) is designed to train the next generation of graduates interested in careers or graduate education in environmental policy, resource management, environmental law, sustainable development, urban planning, and environmental regulation. The major in Environmental and Sustainability Studies (A.B. degree) is designed for students who wish to combine their interest in the environment with additional disciplinary training in another field of study through a second major or minor to support a wide variety of careers or graduate programs in green design, architecture, sustainable food systems management, environmental communication, sustainable business management, environmental economics, environmental health, and international environmental development.
