Ithaca College announces the creation of the Department of Environmental Studies and Science, which will house its degree programs in environmental studies and environmental science. The designation of the new academic department acknowledges the importance of these majors in the priorities of the College and the role they will play in the future of the School of Humanities and Sciences, within which the department is located.
The college began offering the environmental studies major in 1998 and environmental science major in 2005. Both programs — which lead to a bachelor of arts degree — have grown tremendously, with nearly 100 students currently enrolled in one of the two. That growth is expected to continue as the concept of sustainability becomes increasingly important and increasingly appealing to students.
