Environmental Studies Courses

The Environmental studies program balances a strong foundation in the core sciences while building bridges among various disciplines on our campus. This prepares our environmental studies students to become better equipped to deal with highly versatile issues facing our planet.

The Environmental Studies Program is split into three general phases

  1. Introductory Phase
  2. Core Phase
  3. Capstone & Application Phase
