The world is changing, and not all change is for the better. King's Environmental Studies (ENVS) program prepares students with a knowledge of sustainability, including its environmental, social, and economic dimensions and teaches students to confront and reverse harm to Creation and think critically about how the structure of our society impacts the environment.

Through their degree, students will apply technical and theoretical knowledge to discover how humans interact with the environment and can better manage it. Students will be trained in the latest techniques for mapping and aerial photo interpretation, geographical information systems (GIS), environmental impact assessments, statistical analysis, and software for data collection and analysis. 

Environmental Studies is a highly flexible program, and students have plenty of opportunities to focus on the topics and subjects that interest them while keeping the 'big picture' in mind. Valuable hands-on experience and job preparation through our program's internships make the program excellent preparation for future employment.
