The Department of the Environment, Geography and Marine Sciences offers an undergraduate major in Environmental Systems and Sustainability Studies. The program has three tracks: Environmental Systems, Coastal Marine Systems, and Policy and Management. The program is focused on environmental problem solving in terrestrial and coastal marine settings.
The environmental systems track focuses on solving environmental problems that are essentially terrestrial in nature, the solutions to which require understanding the very complex interactions between human systems and natural systems. The types of problems that might be addressed would include water, food and climate change.
