Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary major that integrates courses in the life sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. Faculty from Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Geography, International Studies, Ecological Psychology and History participate in the the program. Additional coursework is required from the fields of Biology and Mathematics. The Environmental Studies program is a new program, beginning it's third year of existance. There are currently 6 faculty involved in the program, working with approximately 35 students, including 24 declared majors, 2 minors, 10 new freshman/transfer students and 1 student who is not on campus, but will graduate this year (2003/2004). We expect to graduate 10 majors and 2 minors Spring 2003. Students have the opportunity to participate in field courses which travel offcampus, internships, independent study and research with professors, travel to scientific meetings and local community service projects such as cleaning up the Illinois River.
