The Environmental Studies (ENVSTD) Concentration fulfills one of Soka University of America’s founding principles: to “foster leaders for the creative coexistence of nature and humanity.” The complex problem of how humans can sustainably live on the planet requires a broad, multidisciplinary approach, one that a liberal arts background is well suited to deliver. Our Concentration provides students with a foundation in the scientific understanding of the environment, as well as the social, cultural, economic, and technological forces that shape human relations with the environment.
