The environmental studies major is offered by the Marine Science and Environmental Studies Department and is designed as an interdisciplinary approach studying environmental issues from the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities perspectives. This major is intended to provide students with a background in the natural sciences balanced by breadth in the social sciences and humanities most directly connected to environmental issues facing the world today. Students majoring in environmental studies will be well prepared to pursue graduate studies in environmental science, environmental policy, resource management, law or any area in the rapidly developing industries related to environmental sustainability. The environmental studies major offers a curriculum that includes preparatory courses in the natural and social sciences designed to prepare students for both the core upper division environmental science classes and the suite of electives they will take as part of the major. Several of the courses in the preparation for the major satisfy core curriculum requirements. Students must complete a capstone experience that consists of at least two units of practical experience followed by Senior Seminar where students formally share the results of their work. Certain courses offered through field programs (like the School for Field Studies) or study abroad programs may satisfy some requirements of the major.
