The Environmental Studies major requires the completion of a selection of classes from both within the Environmental Studies program, as well as from numerous departments across campus. The Environmental Studies major is unique in that it provides its majors with an unparalleled level of flexibility to design an area/areas of emphasis that meet their own individual academic and career goals and interests. Previous Environmental Studies majors have emphasized ecological restoration, energy efficiency, environmental policy, green business and sustainability, water resource management, urban environmentalism, and climate change science, to name but a few.
