Our distinctive Environmental Citizen Curriculum ensures students have the skills needed for success in a changing world. This curriculum brings together students' learning in the classroom together with their values, goals, and desires to make a difference in the world around them.
Our Environmental Citizen Curriculum:
- Grounds each of our degree programs in a broad liberal arts base.
- Integrates the humanities and social sciences into those scientific disciplines that address environmental problems.
- Engages students in the fundamental questions at the center of sustainability science, focusing on the dynamic intersections of nature and society.
- Furnishes students with the communication and critical-thinking skills that meet the demands of a marketplace hungry for environmentally literate professionals.
- Equips students for the central task of moving knowledge into action.
The curriculum includes keystone courses in environmental studies. On top of these fundamentals, courses in composition and communication, mathematics, life, physical and social sciences, as well as humanities and the arts form the core of our academic experience. A community-based experiential learning component engages students in service opportunities and civic responsibility, allowing them to apply classroom learning to real-life situations. An internship, academic field experience, or thesis capstones the curriculum.
