The Environmental Studies program at Edgewood College allows students to pursue a broad, interdisciplinary view of environmental issues. In a world where resource use is expanding and the actions of individuals are increasingly likely to have a global impact, Environmental Studies is more relevant than ever before. In order to make progress toward a sustainable future, we need to understand the current condition of our local and global environment and understand how our actions impact the environment. This requires a broad integration of many different fields, including the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences.
