Because we don’t have a backup planet
The importance of environmental science is made plain every day. The changing climate, polluted air and water, loss of biodiversity, a growing population, and food insecurity are just a few examples of our planet under pressure. It needs protection. At Clark, you’ll explore these and other pressing issues affecting our home — the Earth.
But that’s just the beginning. In addition to understanding, our planet needs action. In the environmental science major, you’ll put your learning into practice by getting out in nature, taking part in research projects, interning at environmental organizations, exploring diverse places and spaces through study abroad, and taking action both on campus and beyond.
