Bachelor of Arts in Environment and Sustainability

Environment and Sustainability

The Environment and Sustainability program is based in an awareness that addressing the 21st century’s pressing social and environmental problems requires a holistic, systems approach that considers the complex relationships between humans and their social, technological and ecological environments. This innovative, interdisciplinary degree program draws together the environmental, natural and social sciences; sustainability and resilience planning and politics; and extensive hands-on experience and professional preparation via internships, research design and implementation, sustainability problem solving, student research, experiential and service learning, community engagement, and leadership development. Committed to social change and the need for positive, proactive transformation of human-ecological relations, from beginning to end the Environment and Sustainability program is designed to equip students with the skills they need to become thinkers and practitioners capable of reimagining and reinventing human- environment relations in the age of climate change.


"Mi piace stare con persone che la pensano come me e che hanno a cuore la natura e uno stile di vita più sostenibile".

Kaitlyn Ivey, B.A. Human Ecology (Environment and Sustainability) student

B.A. Environment and Sustainability

“Environment and Sustainability is the study of the relationship between people and their environments. It’s about learning to understand the world through a complex systems lens and to design solutions to the problems that we face in the world now through that lens. Environment and Sustainability students in our program study the different ways around that world, throughout different points in time people have adapted their environments and created whole worlds out of that.” -Dr. Stephanie Wakefield
