The minor offers undergraduates across the campus--from Liberal Arts and Architecture to Science and Interdisciplinary Studies--a set of tools for understanding the social, political, humanistic, and scientific dimensions of climate change and other environmental problems. Taking advantage of the many courses in sustainability and the environment offered throughout the university, this broadly interdisciplinary program provides students a powerful way to enrich their education and more effectively apply their major field of study to some of the most complex and crucial problems of the new millennium. In an era when concerns about the atmosphere, oceans, biodiversity, energy, urban sprawl, human health, and environmental justice are dramatically intensifying, the ESS program opens important new career paths and responds to the need for environmentally savvy citizens in all areas of contemporary society.
