Requirements & Course Descriptions
To review Environmental Studies program requirements and course offerings, please visit our College Catalog (Hill Book).
Given the complexity and multidisciplinary nature of environmental problems, students aspiring to contribute toward the solutions must acquire knowledge in a variety of areas.
Consequently, Environmental Studies is an interdepartmental program, taught by faculty from across the college. Additionally, the program collaborates with the Students for Environmental Action (SEA), as success in environmental work ultimately demands organizing and activism skills which EV majors and minors are encouraged to develop via taking leadership roles in SEA here on campus.
The program provides students with knowledge of the basic principles of ecology and environmental science, including 51 economic, political, sociological, and philosophical dimensions. Students have the opportunity to tailor the program to their career and personal goals through course selection, internships, and directed study.
Students in the major and the minor program ordinarily enroll in the upper-level courses from a variety of disciplines listed below without completing the pre-requisites that majors in those disciplines are required to complete.
