The Environmental Studies Program equips students with the knowledge, tools, and opportunities needed to engage with environmental issues spawned from the dynamics of climate change, ecological degradation, globalization, economic activity, and societal values.
Our Program’s mission is to graduate men and women who are environmentally literate, socially responsible, effective problem solvers and agents of change for the benefit of society, nature, and themselves.
The Program seeks to instill a personal sense of environmental stewardship that includes an appreciation and understanding of sustainability from ecological and socioeconomic perspectives.
Courses in the Program empower students with necessary scientific, technological, and critical thinking skills. Internships and independent research provide opportunities for practical application of acquired knowledge and skills.
