Department of Environmental Studies

An interdisciplinary department with courses in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Learn about the origins and impacts of, and potential solutions to environmental issues by studying the behavior of natural systems and their interactions with political, economic, social, and cultural factors. By developing a broad foundation of knowledge and integrative thinking skills, students graduate with the intellectual tools and breadth of understanding to confront environmental challenges of the present and future. Students are also encouraged to explore independent and summer research possibilities and utilize the many resources provided by the Miller Worley Center for the Environment.
