Environmental Studies

With an environmental studies concentration, you explore the relationship between humans and our natural environment. Courses help you understand this relationship’s scientific, economic, political, historical, and ethical issues and challenges. You apply what you’ve learned in off-campus study, internships, and capstone projects. An environmental studies concentration can prepare you for graduate school or a career with environmental, political, and research organizations and private-sector companies.
