Who Should Pursue This Program?
This program is ideal if you’re eager to understand — and learn to effectively address — environmental quality, environmental change, and the disproportionate harm from climate change and other environmental problems. You will not only study the natural sciences but also learn to analyze environmental issues from a human health, social scientific, policy, humanities, and/or business perspective. If your interest is in environmental science, consider double-majoring in environmental studies and a science discipline.
Environmental studies graduates are well suited for any career requiring a liberal arts degree, including but not limited to businesses involved in the energy transition; environmental protection and conservation; transportation, planning, and public policy; regulatory administration (including environmental law); research and design; and waste reduction and management.
