Study the consequences of human actions on the natural landscape.Our use of natural resources impacts the environment on a local, regional, and global scale. Study important issues directly related to the consequences of human action on the natural landscape, and gain insight and understanding of the policies and the history that led us to this point.
Your degree in Environmental Studies will provide you with a fundamental background in the sciences that are necessary to understand the environment as well as historical and political perspectives. You'll gain effective communication skills that allow you to find possible solutions to local or global problems. By focusing on biology, ecology, and government and economic policies, you will graduate ready to enter into a career with governmental agencies, the forestry service, or other environmental groups.
Conference OpportunitiesAn important part of doing research is sharing your findings with the scientific community. Most recently, environmental studies students attended the Bahamas National Trust conference and the Association of Southeastern Biologists conference to share their results.
Outdoor LearningMost of your environmental studies courses will have a strong outdoor component—you’ll experience environmental science by getting into the field to observe natural areas and collect data.
Collaborative ResearchYou’ll study and collaborate with faculty whose research interests include fire ecology, ecotoxicology, herpetology, science and religion, rose genetics, parasites, and paleoecology.
