Students graduating from Stetson University with a B.A. degree in Environmental Studies will work within solid ethical and scientific frameworks to make well-supported decisions to protect natural resources, develop innovative solutions for environmental problems, and exhibit bold leadership skills for environmental change. They will communicate clearly and accurately, both orally and in writing, about the challenges and opportunities for humans to live sustainably within the limits of the Earth’s natural systems. Students choose one of the following concentrations: • Environmental Policy and Economics—for students interested in careers in environmental law, policy development, non-profits, and planning. • Environmental Art and Communication—for students interested in leading culture change through art, communication and marketing, and who will pursue careers in non-profits, for-profits, and agencies with strong public education goals. • Cultural Geography—for students who are interested in studying the local and global aspects of human cultures as they are defined by the environment, and who will pursue careers in non-profits, agencies, and foreign service.
