Environmental studies is a concentration within the natural sciences major. Less technical that the environmental science major, this concentration is ideal for the liberal arts student with a broad interest in environmental issues. This interdisciplinary field of study has an emphasis on human interactions with the environment and the public policies—locally, nationally and internationally—that shape those interactions.

Career Opportunities

The environmental studies concentration will prepare students for graduate work and careers in environmental policymaking, law, natural resources, environmental management or business.
