Learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom provide a foundation of knowledge, empowering students to develop creative responses to environmental problems. 

The Environmental Studies program from Rollins College offers preparation for an environmental career, broad background in several related areas of study, or concentration in a particular thematic issue as a basis for graduate study.

The Environmental Studies program is known for its innovative field study opportunities. These include recent field study trips to Costa Rica, Ecuador, and the Pacific Northwest.  Many courses also include field study opportunities in the Central Florida region (including the Wekiva River Basin, Genius Preserve, and Goethe State Forest).
