Applied Environmental Studies Stand-alone Major
The Applied Environmental Studies major
provides theoretical grounding of environmental principles while also providing
robust training in quantitative methods, spatial analysis and communication
skills required for success in the field. Students will be required to complete
fifteen classes: five core courses, five skill-based courses, four elective
courses in a thematic track, and a project-based capstone course. Students
must also complete a pre-approved
(min. 100hrs; ENV 99). We recommend students to start with the gateway
interdisciplinary course ENV 1 Introduction to Environmental Studies.
Environmental Studies Co-major
The Environmental Studies Co-major allows students to master basic scientific
principles of environmental processes to examine interactions between technology
and the environment, and to explore the societal context for implementing
environmental policy. This co-major requires the completion of five core
courses and five courses in a thematic track.
Students must also complete a pre-approved
environmental internship (min. 100hrs; ENV 99). Students pursuing this major must double-major in a second discipline.
We recommend students to start with the gateway interdisciplinary course
ENV 1 Introduction to Environmental Studies.
