Degree Programs

The Environmental & Sustainability Studies Program offers three B.A. concentrations: Environmental Studies (emphasizing natural sciences), Sustainability Studies (emphasizing social sciences and humanities), and Environmental & Sustainability Studies (a self-designed major for students with at least a 3.30 GPA as of the junior year).  We also offer two minors: Environmental Studies and Sustainability Studies, which are smaller versions of the majors. All of these majors and minors are conveniently integrated with other majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences and throughout the University in general. Many of our required classes fulfill general education requirements, and students have great flexibility in designing their course of study.  The Program is officially a concentration in Special Programs in Liberal Studies but has existed as an identifiable program since 2000, when the minor in Environmental Studies was first offered.  The major in Environmental Studies (B.A.) began in 2007, and the minor in Sustainability Studies was first offered in 2014.  The curriculum was completely revised and launched anew in the fall of 2017.
