Environmental Science is the study of the interrelationship between human activities and the environment. We examine effects of human actions on the environment, and the means by which policies, regulations, and decisions influence human actions. We also study human behavioral, cultural, and sociological interactions that affect the environment.

As an Environmental Science and Sustainability major you will acquire the skills necessary to positively impact both the natural world and the humans who call it home.
