Our interdisciplinary curriculum introduces students to vital environmental issues of our times, awakening or strengthening a sense of environmental awareness and a commitment to environmental stewardship and justice. Courses in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sciences focus on diverse aspects of environmental thought, research, and awareness—from poetry to hydrology, from forest conservation to animal studies, from public policy to geology, from whaling history to organic farming. We bring speakers to campus, offer field trips and internships, show films, promote sustainability and environmental justice across the campus community and beyond, and are continually developing new opportunities for study. As Director of the minor, I invite you to join us.
