It’s in the Nature of Things
Combine your passion for the natural world with biogeochemistry, biology, chemistry and ecology to address and solve issues between humans and the environment.
The Environment – Down to a Science
Gain advanced scientific and quantitative understanding of contemporary environmental issues with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science. Take advantage of research opportunities in the region's many lakes and rivers, forests and mountain ranges, or walk outside of your residence hall to the campus pond, fields, maple sugar house, permaculture garden and tree nursery, or 86-acre certified tree farm.
Combine your classroom and laboratory learning with field studies courses in the Colorado River basin, the desert Southwest, the island community of Martha’s Vineyard or the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Walking Our Talk
Environmental stewardship is practised every day on the Colby-Sawyer campus. You can see it in the spinning blades of the wind turbine, as the solar arrays soak up the sun, on the locally sourced dining menu, and through our affiliations with organizations committed to environmental advocacy. Read more about the student-developed climate commitment that pledges the campus to carbon neutrality by 2050.
