Environmental Studies

Course Information

Program Overview

Environmental Studies explores how human beings interact with their environment and how that interaction affects us all.

Encompassing a number of disciplines—including economics, science, ecology, sociology, and politics—Assumption’s Environmental Studies program looks at the complex ways in which man and nature affect one another, the problems that can cause, and how we can solve them. Building off a foundation in fields like biology, chemistry and oceanography, the program analyzes issues like land use policy, environmental economics and conservation.

As a multidisciplinary program, Environmental Studies offers students the broad base of skills and knowledge they’ll need for a variety of careers. An Environmental Studies minor is an ideal complement to students studying political science, economics, the natural sciences, or sociology.
