Environmental Studies

Abernathy Field Station - EVS

About

Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary department that equips students with the tools and opportunities to engage with environmental and social issues spawned from the dynamics of globalization, human population, economic activity, and societal values.

Students study and interact with the environment from aesthetic, social, ethical, technological, and scientific perspectives, and analyze complex environmental matters through labs, coursework and field work. Students gain a personal sense of environmental stewardship that includes an appreciation and understanding of sustainability from ecological and socioeconomic perspectives.

A major and minor in Environmental Studies are available, as well as independent research and internship opportunities. A major requires 10 courses and a minor requires six. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
