The curriculum emphasizes four components: humanities and social sciences, natural sciences, skills and the capstone experience.
First-year students are encouraged to begin with the Adirondack Experience, an applied and place-based learning program utilizing the largest park in the lower 48 which is right in our backyard. The program combines our introductory course with two-three other required courses and numerous field trips to explore contemporary environmental issues. Later on in the program, after the sophomore or junior year, the optional internship/field experience provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the environmental field. Finally, in a capstone seminar, seniors develop and present an independent research project.
The Environmental Studies Major at State University of New York Potsdam seeks to provide students with an understanding of human attitudes and behaviors toward nature, and provides a grounding in science to prepare them to shape viable environmental policy and practice.
