The program in environmental studies allows students to engage in an integrated, interdisciplinary study of the environment:  the natural world, both in itself and as it has

been modified by human activity. The program provides students with the tools and ideas needed to engage constructively with the environmental and social issues brought about by changes in population, economic activity, and values.
