Major in Environmental Studies and Environmental Science

The Environmental Studies Concentration is for students who are interested in environmental planning, regulation and policy, environmental health and educating others about environmental issues. Students interested in environmental sustainability are also typically Environmental Studies students. Environmental Studies tracks include Environmental Policy and Management, Environmental Geography, Environmental Health, Informal Environmental Education and Environmental Directed Studies.

Along with completing the common required courses, students in the Environmental Studies Concentration complete additional units as they complete one of five tracks. The tracks are:

  • Environmental Geographical Analysis
  • Environmental Policy/Management
  • Environmental Health
  • Directed Environmental Studies
  • Informal Environmental Education

All students in the program will complete the required courses establishing the scientific principles and mathematical skills needed as a foundation for more specialized study. They also will complete additional courses in the social sciences, an upper-level internship or research course and additional course work appropriate to the selected track.
