Environmental Programs

Our program features majors in environmental science, environmental studies, and sustainability studies, as well as concentrations in environmental science and environmental studies. The concentrations combine with traditional liberal arts majors and can be tailored to meet individual students' career goals.

Sometimes the best classroom settings aren’t classrooms at all. Our field seminars are life-changing: you’ll travel to diverse locations around the U.S. and meet people who are working on environmental protection and sustainability causes. And through internships and research projects, you’ll explore the social, political, and scientific dimensions of sustainability and be well prepared for a career in this vital field.
