The School for the Environment's undergraduate programs highlight geological, oceanic, geographic and environmental sciences. These programs use an interdisciplinary approach to address relationships between physical, natural, and human environments. As environmental systems of all types become increasingly impacted by both natural and anthropogenic causes, interdisciplinary approaches become crucial for understanding the inherent complexities of these systems, and for designing solutions to address environmental degradation.
The School for the Environment offers bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees in environmental science; minors in clean energy and sustainability, environmental science, and geospatial analysis and modeling for the environment; and a specialized undergraduate certificate program in clean energy and sustainability. Course offerings reflect faculty expertise in the physical and cultural earth and geographic sciences, environmental research and resource management, and urban and regional geography.
