Program Description

Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies (ES)

Green Mountain College

The environmental studies program at G.M.C. weaves a challenging curriculum together with hands­-on opportunities to build skills and make a change.

Environmental Studies majors at Green Mountain College can choose to concentrate in a number of different fields—policy, philosophy, science, education, communication, and many more—but they have one thing in common: they want to change the world. The environmental studies program provides students with the skills, knowledge, and experience that they will need to address complex environmental and social problems. By helping students become critical thinkers and engaged citizens, the environmental studies major empowers students with tools for effective political, economic, and social transformation.

Students who have majored in Environmental Studies have gone on to become community planners, environmental lawyers, and directors of non­profit organizations. Many now work for state and federal agencies or educational institutions.

Block Courses

Environmental Studies periodically offers special interdisciplinary block courses, from six to fifteen credits that focus on complex environmental issues in the region and often involve overnight field trips. These have recently included The Northern Forest, The Lake Champlain Basin, The Hudson River, The Adirondacks, Renewing Civil Society, The Promise and Peril of Biotechnology, The Vermont Wilderness Debate, Soil Ecology, and Food, Agriculture, and Community Development in the Northeast.
