This program in the School of Letters and Sciences is part of an interdisciplinary program that has a common core that integrates social, environmental, and economic considerations toward the wise use of resources for current and future generations. The goal of this new major is to bring together courses in diverse disciplines which have an environmental focus, including science, public policy, and leadership. Students can chose between:
- B.S. degree that has science requirements related to ecology and conservation
- B.A. degree that builds on the humanities including language, ethics, and literature
A significant internship or research experience in sustainability is required of all students in the sustainability programs. This practical experience in sustainability can be tailored to the student's career interests, providing hand-on experience and connections in the community. In addition, the environmental sustainability major has room for electives to allow the student to pursue a minor or tailor their course work based on their career interests.
