Experience the sciences, social sciences, and humanities through a rigorous yet flexible curriculum and practical application. Learn how science impacts our world, our lives, and our communities, and how science is influenced by society and its economic, political, and cultural motives. Science, Technology, and Society majors graduate with the interdisciplinary knowledge, intellectual flexibility, communication, and problem solving skills that are crucial to every career path.
In a world of rapidly increasing human population, it has never been more important to focus on the environment and our interaction with it. The Environmental Studies major provides a flexible and rigorous curriculum that challenges students to explore the economic, political, cultural, technological, and scientific facets of environmental issues. Beyond the classroom, you will complete a community-based internship or other real-world experience related to the environment and sustainability. Our multidisciplinary approach, coupled with hands-on experience, prepares graduates for complex careers in exploration, management, preservation, and conservation of the natural environment.
