As the most populous city in the United States, New York provides the ideal classroom to study environmental issues and sustainable development. Our Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies brings together perspectives from the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences to devise sustainable solutions to environmental problems. Environmental Studies majors spend time outdoors, conducting field work in the city and focusing on issues unique to the urban environment. Students take advantage of unique internship and volunteer opportunities in public policy, environmental conservation, and urban resource management. This major prepares students for careers in urban planning, public policy, environmental consulting, education, advocacy, and environmental health. Students take courses with faculty with expertise in a variety of disciplines throughout the college.

Environmental Studies also makes an ideal double major, with many possibilities for “double dipping” with the general education curriculum. Click here for the course requirements in the Environmental Studies major. We also offer a minor in Environmental Studies.
