We offer an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts major in Environmental Studies for students who have an abiding interest in the general environmental problems faced by humans, and with special concern for their humanistic, policy, and social science aspects. Themes for this major include Environmental Policy, Politics and Economics, Environmental Planning, Environmental Ethics/Humanities, Environmental Advocacy, International Environmental Perspectives, Environmental and Human Health, and Perspectives on Sustainability.

We also offer a Bachelor of Arts major in Environmental Science as a coordinate major. This major is only available to students who also major in biology, chemistry, or geology, and therefore may be thought of as a means of adding an environmental concentration to a B.A. science degree. Complementing the depth of knowledge in the student's primary area of study, the B.A. in Environmental Science provides breadth across the interdisciplinary field of environmental science.
