Environmental Studies Program Description
The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Environmental Studies is designed to be a professional, applied program that focuses on the importance of social and cultural contexts in understanding and responding to environmental issues. Recognizing that environmental practitioners who may not be scientists must still be able to engage in productive and meaningful dialogue with colleagues in the sciences, this program will provide the scientific literacy and quantitative skills necessary to engage all constituencies in these fields. The program will be offered in a distance-learning, limited-residency format.
