Environmental Studies

Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary major for the student who wants broad training in environmental themes. Environmental Studies majors select a primary disciplinary focus in biology, chemistry, economics, history, or political science.

Majors take the junior qualifying exam in their home department, as well as a research proposal-based junior qualifying exam evaluated by the Environmental Studies Committee.
