The Environmental Cultures and Values minor explores historical and contemporary understandings of the environment through literature, cinema, the arts, philosophy, history, anthropology, political science and cultural geography. Taking a broad view of the meaning of "environment" (humans, the non-human world, built and natural environments, and all interactions among them), this interdisciplinary program prepares students for further study of environmental cultures and related professional paths ( environmental NGO's, arts organizations, government, natural history writing).
