Environmental Studies

Students working in the field

Environmental Studies is a two-year, interdisciplinary program that provides students with a broad understanding of the human relationship to the natural world, giving them the skills to diagnose and address environmental issues in a variety of contexts. Students gain a strong grounding in environmental science, as well as training in the social sciences and humanities required to analyze and respond to the complex and dynamic environmental problems of the modern world.

Where It Will Take You (and Career Possibilities)

Baccalaureate degrees in Environmental Studies provide students with the knowledge and skills to pursue a wide variety of careers in the environmental and sustainability fields. This can include research, technical, educational, advocacy and planning positions at governmental agencies, or with domestic and international environmental nonprofit organizations. Graduates have also pursued careers in corporate research, sustainability and environmental affairs.

The bachelor’s degree also prepares students for graduate study and careers in environmental law, public policy and public affairs, forestry and wildlife management, academic research, and dozens of other environment fields
