Integrated Environmental Studies
Understanding environmental issues requires knowledge of natural and human social systems and the ways they interact, which can only be gained through the integration of different perspectives. For this reason, the integrated environmental studies major focuses on developing students' abilities to integrate concepts and knowledge relevant to environmental issues from across multiple disciplines and to communicate about those in important ways.
Students will choose an area of concentration which will focus on just one area of an important environmental topic. The integrated environmental studies students can expect to integrate information from various fields, confront diverse and sometimes conflicting perspectives, and apply these in specific problem-solving efforts.
This program is geared toward adults who want to prepare for a variety of careers in environmental science without giving up family or work responsibilities. Our weekend and online classes are an ideal fit for today’s busy adults.
