项目的亮点

The 环境研究 Program is an interdisciplinary program that stimulates informed democratic citizenship in a global environment and enhances knowledge of the complex and dynamic relationship between humans and the natural world. All students seeking an 环境研究 degree should consult with the 环境研究 Coordinator early in their college experience to ensure the most appropriate course of study to achieve their goals. The program features both a major and a minor.

Learning goals for the 环境研究主要:

  1. Understand this multidisciplinary field of study, and identify courses that provide the breadth and depth of knowledge needed for their chosen career path in environmental studies.
  2. Analyze a complex environmental issue using appropriate sources and include the 道德 underpinnings of the issue.
  3. Connect theory and practice through either participating in an internship, 或者通过完成一个研究项目, 与环境研究有关.
  4. Evaluate the importance of an environmental topic to local and global communities and reflect critically on their relationship to that topic.
