  • Environmental Studies Program

    The goals of the environmental studies major are:

     

    • to examine holistically the interactions between humans and the environment from aesthetic, cultural, economic, moral, political, and scientific perspectives; 
    • and to emphasize skills and techniques needed to solve environmental problems in an interdisciplinary fashion.

    The environmental studies major allows students to combine their interests in a traditional discipline with the broader training needed to address complex environmental issues. Individuals with environmental problem-solving abilities are needed in many facets of society, including science, politics, law, business, and public administration. Each environmental studies major will follow an individualized program of study that will include economic, scientific, political, and ethical components. 

    Students in the environmental studies program can take advantage of Hamline’s location in the Twin Cities to pursue an increasing variety of internship and research opportunities.

    Environmental studies program director: Mike Farris, Biology department.
