The environmental studies major serves as a bridge between the natural sciences, social sciences, the humanities and biblical and religious studies. It continually seeks to create a conversation between disciplines related to natural history, human history and religious values.
- Students studying in this major experience a broad range of disciplinary methods, all focused upon the character and nature of human existence within natural and human environments.
Because of its highly-interdisciplinary structure, the Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies can benefit almost any career field. Specific opportunities can be found in public affairs, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation and graduate study in any of the related sciences.
