Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies (ENVS) program prepares students with a knowledge of sustainability, including its environmental, social and economic dimension. Trace the history of sustainable development and explore how humans can take action to reverse harm and improve sustainability and the quality of Creation.

The Environmental Studies program instructs students in a wide variety of practical environmental skills including mapping and aerial photo interpretation, geographical information systems (GIS), environmental impact assessments (EIA), statistical analysis, and a variety of other computer applications. Student's apply technical and theoretical knowledge in order to discover how humans interact with the environment, and can better manage it.

Gain a broader perspective of the environment while focusing on the intricacies of your own areas of interest. The ENVS program is available as a major in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree program which means ENVS students can study the environment through either a scientific or humanities based lens.

Explore how world-wide environmental challenges are not simply scientific dilemmas but rather are intricately linked with social, economic, and spiritual realities, and gain valuable hands on experience and job preparation through the internship part of the program.
