Description
The Environmental Studies (ES) Program combines rigorous empiricism with analysis of ethical, aesthetic, and historical issues in examining the relationship between humans and the nonhuman world. A rich array of faculty expertise, courses, facilities, internships, and study abroad options provides the foundation for an interdisciplinary study of the environment.

Careful planning on the student's part is essential from the beginning of one's undergraduate career. Because of the individualized, interdisciplinary nature of the program and the sequential nature of many of the courses, students should normally declare an ES major no later than the end of their sophomore year, and should consult with an advisor from the department of their intended concentration.

Courses taken by Gustavus ES students draw from a variety of departments including Art, Biology, Chemistry, English, Geology, Geography, History, Political Science, Economics, and Sociology/Anthropology to provide students with a strong, liberal arts education. Environmental Studies majors choose one of four tracks, which allows them to narrow their academic focus and explore their own interests in more depth.
