Does the institution offer at least one ​sustainability-focused​ major, degree, or certificate program for undergraduate students?:
Yes

Name of the sustainability-focused undergraduate degree program:
Environmental Studies

A brief description of the undergraduate degree program:
Our bachelor's degree in environmental studies grows from our stated mission to act as stewards of the earth. It is the unique outcome of the talents of our faculty; our distinctive surroundings; our geographic proximity to freshwater and saltwater bodies, forests and farmland; and collaborations with local and regional groups such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and the Aquidneck Land Trust. Our program exposes students to the broad range of issues that arise from the interaction of humans with the natural world, and to the tools required to understand and solve environmental problems. Coursework is drawn from fields such as biology, math, public policy, economics and cultural and historic preservation. Student-directed research leads to a thesis in the senior year, and majors are encouraged to address real-world problems through internships and field study.
