The environmental studies program is an interdisciplinary program designed to enhance student understanding of the importance of integrating scientific, political, ethical, and economic knowledge and values necessary to address issues facing humankind and its role in maintaining the natural environment.
- Focus on breadth of perspective rather than technical aspects.
- Develop problem-solving skills pertinent to both scientific and policy arenas.
- Provide an interdisciplinary perspective that encourages the integration of economics and the social and natural sciences.
- Encourage directed field work in the form of independent studies or internships within a broad array of disciplines pertinent to environmental studies.
