Why Study Environmental Humanities

Learn the analytical and communication skills and the broad background to understand and address complex environmental issues. Because environmental issues are not resolved in the scientific, technological, social, or political arena alone, the interdisciplinary curriculum integrates principles and methodology from the social sciences, engineering, the natural sciences, and humanities. You'll also customize your experience by choosing an area of concentration. Additionally, a research course, an internship, or field study is an essential part of the curriculum to provide real-world experience in an appropriate subject area.
