Environmental Studies Major B.S.
Environmental issues and problems arise at the interface of complex human and natural systems, and addressing them requires a synergistic combination of scientific, social and cultural knowledge. Addressing these issues and problems also requires scientific, social and cultural skills. The program described below has been designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms of society, as well as the scientific foundations of environmental science. The goal of the program is to train students to draw on their knowledge in one area to consider problems in another. Students need to understand the scientific basis of environmental issues just as much as the workings of the government agencies that have the power to address these issues. It is only through acquiring this interdisciplinary knowledge and skill-set that students can be prepared to work for a more ecologically sustainable and socially just world. The director of the major is the director of environmental science systems; however, because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program, curricular oversight is shared with the Department of Biological Sciences.
