About Environmental Science and Studies

Students in Environmental Science and Studies gain knowledge on how the natural world works, how we interact with it and how we can work to protect, restore and sustain it for the future. Studying the intersections between ecology, the social sciences, and the humanities, our students learn the interrelationships between human society and the natural world. Through contexts such as natural sciences, communication, geography, religion, history, literature, art and design, and public policy, Environmental Science and Studies majors gain an understanding of the core concepts of and current issues in environmental science.

We offer two undergraduate programs: a BS in Environmental Science and a BA in Environmental Studies, as well as minors in Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, and Sustainability Studies. We also offer a Master of Science in Environmental Science.
