The Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies prepares
students as professionals and citizens of the world for
work in environmental careers. Environmental Studies
is an interdisciplinary program that instills in students
an ability to better understand the relationships between
humans and the environments and humanity’s impact on
the different environments. Students work individually
and collaboratively to acquire the knowledge, skills,
attitudes, and motivation to seek out solutions to global
environmental issues. Through interdisciplinary study
in science, the social sciences, and the humanities,
Environmental Studies encourages students to embrace
the interconnections in knowledge and the environment
in order to understand and manage the complexities of
environmental, cultural, and socials issues that are local,
national, and global in scale.
