Explore the complex challenges facing the Earth.
Given the complexity of environmental issues, you will learn to weigh all aspects — the social, political, economic, and scientific — when proposing ideas and solutions.
By drawing on coursework from a wide range of perspectives by faculty all across campus, we train students to see problems from multiple angles, and to think critically about the root causes of environmental challenges as well as the opportunities and barriers for implementing solutions.
Together we consider ways to reduce negative impacts to the environment and human health, improve the management and use of ecosystems and natural resources, cultivate more sustainable living practices, and protect and conserve the wild.
