Major in Environment and Society

Environment and Society is offered as a double Major. Students choosing Environment and Society as their Major will also complete a second Major in another field of study. Because Environment and Society studies cross many different disciplines, any discipline that a student may choose would complement their ENVS program. ENVS electives offered by other departments may count both for the ENVS Major and for the Major in that department.
