Focus Areas

Focus Areas

Students will, in consultation with their advisors, choose one or two focus areas to lend depth and coherence to the major and guide course choices. Students can include focus areas on resumes, but they are not officially listed on transcripts. Focus areas include a variety of topics, approaches and academic lenses in environmental studies. ES courses will be labeled with the focus areas that best describe them. For students declaring an ES Major, please select a focus area(s) and advisor here
