Environmental Studies and Sustainability


Why Study Environmental Studies and Sustainability?

The need to understand, respond to and alter the impacts of human activity on the natural systems of the planet has never been more urgent. We must rethink, redesign and recreate how humans make use of the earth’s natural resources. 

A degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability will prepare you to rise to these challenges—on campus and in the world. It will also equip you to play a role in the emerging green economy.
