What will it take to transition our economy to renewable energy and minimize the impact of global climate change? To feed a world with 8 billion people using sustainable farming techniques that protect soil health and water quality?  To build cities that foster social justice and provide healthy communities and green jobs? To undo the history of colonialism and racism that have resulted in marginalized communities bearing the biggest burden of environmental damage?  These are big questions and big challenges.  

It will take teams of diverse and dedicated citizens and problem-solvers to tackle them.  Students in Environmental Studies at Augsburg gain the skills, knowledge, and real-world experiences needed to do just that.  

With a focus on urban environmental justice and a rich array of resources in a diverse urban neighborhood near the Mississippi River, Environmental Studies program from Augsburg University provides students with training and foundation for building meaningful lives and careers that help address some of the most important challenges facing us in the 21st Century.
