The environmental studies major leads to a bachelor of arts degree and is appropriate for students seeking rigorous preparation in the social sciences and humanities needed to understand how society affects the environment, how it organizes itself to respond to environmental problems, and how understanding of the environment is transmitted through culture. All students gain a sufficient base of scientific and mathematical expertise to allow them to work effectively with environmental scientists and engineers. The major also provides strong preparation for graduate and professional training, especially in environmental policy, journalism, education, and law.
