Environmental Studies

Professor James C.G. Walker (Geology), Director

Not a concentration program

The Environmental Studies Program is designed to complement and broaden students’ perspective on their specific disciplines. The scope of the Environmental Studies Program extends beyond the study of the "environment" to exploring human-environment relations in the sciences and humanities. A student may choose to emphasize environmental studies in the LS&A Individual Concentration Program (ICP), but Environmental Studies is not a concentration program.

The Program consists of special courses at three levels, as well as a number of courses cross-listed with regular departmental courses.

Environmental Studies 320 is the Program’s 1st level course. This introductory lecture exposes students to the wide range of disciplines in the College and University which relate to environmental issues.

Second-level courses provide a variety of perspectives from which to view and analyze areas of environmental concern. Since the spectrum of courses offered at this level varies from year to year, students should consult the time schedule for current information.

Third-level courses include Environmental Studies 420 and 421. They enable students versed in environmental studies to focus on a particular issue. The student is responsible for defining a plan of study, enlisting others with similar interests (if appropriate), and locating a faculty member willing to supervise.
