B.S. in Environmental Studies
The B.S. degree in Environmental Studies supports the education objectives of students whose primary interests lie in the areas of environmental planning, policy development, and sustainable resource management. This degree blends foundational studies in environmental science, economics, ethics and political science with advanced study in the social sciences to develop the skills necessary to address societal needs and concerns involving the environment.
B.S. in Environmental and Ecological Science
The B.S. degree in Environmental and Ecological Science includes advanced study of ecological processes for those students who are specifically interested in environmental science careers in ecosystem management, wildlife ecology, conservation biology and environmental monitoring.
A.B. in Environmental and Sustainability Studies
The A.B. degree provides a foundation in the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences, and advanced study in one of three applied focus areas (responsible design and building arts, sustainable food production, or human ecology) to support students interested in green design, corporate sustainability, environmental communications, journalism and environmental art. The overlap between the elective courses in the A.B. degree and the traditional Arts and Sciences disciplines facilitates the pursuit of a second major.
Environmental and Sustainability Studies Minor
The minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies was developed for students with a major in another field of study who have an interest in developing their understanding of sustainability and the environment.
