Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies major provides students the opportunity to examine the connections between the environment and the local and global communities. Through a combination of coursework and Connected Learning experiences, the program prepares students to address the many environmental challenges we face, including matters of public policy, economics, and ethics, and to pursue solutions to these challenges through environmental studies jobs. Students will have service-learning and internship opportunities to work on sustainability issues on campus as well as with environmental organizations in the Boston area. A Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies will prepare students to pursue careers in environmental studies with opportunities in such fields as policy and regulation, advocacy, resource management, and outdoor education. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Environmental Studies Program.
