The Environmental Studies program prepares graduates for a career and for graduate study in the broad field of environmental studies and sustainable development. The program uses a multidisciplinary systems approach for teaching students to think critically and creatively within a liberal arts tradition. ENS students and graduates will be expected to communicate effectively; understand the need for transparent, data-driven decision-making; and understand the importance of including a diversity of perspectives for effective environmental planning and management. In order to tailor the program of study to specific career aspirations, students choose a set of professional electives that should be coherent and clearly reflect specific career goals.
