Seven academic departments have collaborated to create the Interdisciplinary Minor in Environmental Studies. The program challenges students to explore our physical environment from various perspectives, from literature to theology, and biology to sociology.
Through the successful completion of this interdisciplinary minor, students will learn diverse approaches to understand, relate to, and responsibly manage non-human nature. The coursework supports a scientiﬁc understanding of ecosystems; a philosophical, theological, artistic and literary basis for relating to the environment; socio-political, economic and historical contexts; and hands-on experience in conservation, preservation and restoration.
