Bachelor of Arts
School of Environment & Sustainability
Environment & Sustainability (ENVS) focuses on the interactions of humans and the natural environment. Students study the structure and function of natural systems; examine how social, political and economic activity impacts those systems; and experiment with resilient solutions to unsustainable human impacts.
The ENVS program prepares students for meaningful livelihoods based on their values. Our graduates enter their fields with the skills to connect ideas, individuals and organizations. They become effective interdisciplinary communicators, and they enact positive change throughout their natural and social communities. To complement their ENVS degree, some students opt to focus in on water issues through our Water Emphasis, while others design their own custom-built Individualized Contract.
For students looking to accelerate their journey to a higher level environmental career, we offer the 3+2 program which allows students to transform their senior year into the first year of graduate school in our innovative Master of Environmental Management program (MEM). Our MEM program prepares students for incredible careers with an 85 percent placement rate.
