We believe today's environmental problems require interdisciplinary thinking and integrated solutions. Our department trains students to see these 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.
ENVS faculty also involve students in their research focused on local freshwater quality, soil contamination, archaeology, forest management, aquaponics, sustainability in the global south, local environmental history, policy, and communication about current environmental issues.
Exciting news, accomplishments, grants and presentations both on-and-off campus!
