Active Learning

The Environmental Studies Program requires that all majors participate in some kind of experiential, or active, learning opportunity before graduating. To help students quantify their experiences and guarantee that they’re ready for graduate study or careers in environmental studies, the program requires at least two elective hours of experiential learning, either through taking ENVR 388 or ENVR 320. The most standard ways to earn credit include participating in an environmental internship or doing supervised, independent research on an environmental topic.
