Upon successful completion of the Environmental Studies (ES) major, students will have developed the key skills and knowledge required for successful completion of the major in their home department (biology, chemistry, economics, history, or political science) as well as a range of analytical skills to study environmental issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives.
For the learning outcomes for the home departments, see:
Additional ES learning outcomes:
- Understand and execute interdisciplinary work, that is, work that borrows perspectives, techniques or methods from different disciplines
- Work collaboratively with students from various disciplinary backgrounds on a significant interdisciplinary research project, including multidisciplinary literature background and the development and pursuit of an interdisciplinary methodology.
