About

For nearly fifty years, Macalester College has had a dedicated and deeply interdisciplinary focus on Environmental Studies. 

Overview

We use case studies, problem-solving, and a community-centered approach to address environmental problems at the local, national and global levels.

Our faculty bring expertise from the humanities, social sciences, physical, and biological sciences. Our affiliated faculty in other departments come from all corners of campus, including anthropology, biology, chemistry, economics, education, geography, geology, GIS, philosophy, and physics.

Research

Our students in the Environmental Studies program at Macalester College work with faculty through summer research fellowships on tropical rainforests, climate change policy, paleoclimate, and the psychology of behavioral change.

Many students go on to conduct independent research culminating in honors theses such as how agriculture might mitigate climate change; lowering the implementation barriers to photovoltaics; and global sanitation challenges.
