California State University, East Bay
Environmental Studies B.A. - Environment and Society Option
The Environmental Studies major is designed to provide an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary overview of the environmental studies field, coupled with an in-depth study of one subfield. The core requires coursework in the sciences and social sciences and students may build options based on one or several related fields in these categories.
As part of the Environmental Studies major, students must select a 16 unit program of electives. Three options allow students latitude in providing specialization to a particular field of interest: Environment and Society, Physical Environment and Sustainable Resource Management. Courses in these options must be distributed across two departments.
Environmental Studies majors are provided internship and service learning opportunities through assignments in public and private agencies on projects related to citizen action, environmental management and planning, or in research. Ten to twenty hours weekly are required and are supervised and evaluated by agency personnel.
