As part of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Environmental Studies Program sponsors a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies in four areas of concentration and a minor in Environmental Studies. For students in the Division of Continuing Studies there is an opportunity to work towards a Bachelor of General Studies degree with a concentration in Environmental Studies. Other students choose majors in one of the traditional disciplines and supplement their training with courses from the Environmental Studies curriculum.
