School of Environment and Sustainability

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SEaS) is a community of scholars and students dedicated to understanding and meeting the world’s environmental challenges. SEaS is the home of the Environmental Studies BS and BA, as well as two minor tracks. SEaS and Environmental Studies bring together expertise in the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities to create a truly transdisciplinary approach to problem solving in the classroom and in the community.

Environmental Studies students are intentional in seeking an understanding of the ecological, historical, ethical, and cultural contexts of environmental problems. They learn how to communicate effectively and translate scientific knowledge. They know that science alone will not provide solutions, since problem solving is a social and political process. They develop the writing and critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in environmental research, policy, law, planning, and other diverse fields where they can put their passion to work.
