Environmental and Sustainability Studies


Understanding the interactions between humans and the environment and their connection with ecological, societal, and economic processes at local, regional, and global scales is a core competency in today's world. The study of sustainability bridges the arts and humanities, social sciences, and the physical and life sciences. It complements traditional disciplines by offering an opportunity for education in coupled natural and human systems that encompasses study of the environment, society, economy, and the arts. The major, awarded jointly by the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, is administered by the Integrated Program in the Environment.
