Environmental and Sustainability Studies is an interdisciplinary field that fosters understanding of the relationship between humans, society, and the physical and biological setting in which life on Earth exists. It integrates scientific study of ecosystems, pollution, climate, energy, and other environmental and natural resource matters on a global, regional or local scale with cultural and policy-related study of philosophy, literature, politics, economics, sociology, history, management, and law.

The Environmental Studies program is designed to provide students with a broad exposure to topics related to the environment and sustainability and to provide knowledge and skills to address major environmental and sustainability issues. Students interested in completing the program should work closely with their advisors to ensure that they meet prerequisites for upper division courses.
