Welcome to Environmental Studies and Sciences

Our department trains students to see environmental problems from multiple perspectives: scientific, humanistic, political, ethical, cultural, historical, and geographic. Students have opportunities to do original, hands-on, mentored projects in the context of science, social values, writing, and economic and political realities.
