Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies

Head this way for a green career

The Environmental Studies major is designed to provide students with necessary experience and preparation for a career in the “green sector,” which ranges from wildlife and game management to environmental policy, law, and advocacy, alternative energy and fuels, forestry, agriculture, and sustainably studies. As the “green sector” is one of the fastest-growing components of the modern job market, the Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies major will involve and prepare students with a strong interest in the environmental sectors of society. Students intending to work in the environmental sector immediately following graduation or those bound for professional engagement in the environment, law, green business or industry, wildlife, or public policy are ideal candidates for this major.
