Student Learning Outcomes
Environmental Studies students can describe the components and function of Earth systems, have knowledge of environmental policy and ethical approaches to environmental issues, and have engaged in global challenges such as climate change, global water scarcity and ocean acidification, energy, consumption and waste management, and urban sustainability. Environmental Studies students will be actively involved with diverse communities throughout their course work and understand environmental challenges from multiple cultural perspectives and through world experiences. Environmental Studies students will demonstrate this learning through the application, across the curriculum, of advanced geographical knowledge, quantitative, and analytical skills in their application to new settings and complex problems. Environmental Studies students will have the ability to characterize environmental elements analytically and communicate their findings effectively.
