Meet the Faculty
The interdisciplinary environmental studies major examines natural and cultural systems from many perspectives – ecological, economic, ethical, historical, geographical, and political. Students study the conservation and utilization of natural resources essential for economic development and public well-being.
The curriculum analyzes the problems, processes, and possibilities of creating a more sustainable society. It also offers preparation for an environmental career, broad background in several related areas of study, or concentration in a particular thematic issue as a basis for graduate study.
Florida offers an ideal laboratory for environmental studies. Nationally recognized projects such as the Everglades Restoration, Wekiva River Habitat Corridor, and models in the New Urbanism place Florida in the forefront of environmental protection and sustainable design.
