Environmental Studies (BA)
This multidisciplinary program focuses on the interface between environmental science and social sciences, including public policy, political science, law, economics, sociology, geography, and planning. Toward this end, graduates will have a fundamental understanding of the scientific processes (i.e. biological, chemical, geomorphic, and geologic) that underlie the composition of the natural landscape, coupled with a foundation in the social sciences that underlie the diversity and composition of human landscape. The program is founded on the principle that the social sciences - both as a body of knowledge and as the basis for structuring human societal norms - must be applied to assess the direct and indirect influences of human activities on the integrity of Earth's Systems.
