Environmental Studies seeks to (1) evaluate the nature and magnitude of environmental and climatic change at local, regional, and global scales; (2) understand and explore solutions to energy challenges; and (3) assess the impact of environmental, climatic, and energy challenges on society and contribute toward the development of a public policy that promotes sustainability.

Students should be able to (1) Evaluate the nature and magnitude of environmental and climatic change at local, regional, and global scales; (2) demonstrate knowledge and analyze solutions to our energy challenges; (3) assess the impact of environmental, climatic, and energy challenges facing society and contribute towards the development of a public policy that promotes sustainability; and (4) identify the cases, scales, and remediation and mitigation approaches to major local, regional and global environmental problems.
