This BES equips students with the tools and critical thinking skills necessary to make decisions regarding how we use the environment now with a view to future generations. Students in each BES major take a common set of courses through out the four years of the program. Environmental Studies majors take an additional set of courses from a social science perspective (such as economics, political science, geography) whereas Resource Mangement majors take as set of courses have an ecological or science based perspective (such as geographic information systems, population and resource dynamics, and quantitative methods).  BES is ideal for students who are looking to design solutions that meet the needs of current society without jeopardizing the quality and quantity of resources for the future.  Students take a holistic approach, exploring ethics, ecology, economics, geography, risk, activism and policy, examining issues through both local and global lenses.
