Environmental Studies | St. Lawrence University


Environmental Studies is inherently interdisciplinary and provides a critical perspective for students interested in the earth's coupled socio-ecological system.  In Environmental Studies, we value creativity, diversity, community resilience, restorative practices, and innovation, while recognizing limits to material expansion. We affirm that inclusion is essential to solve the environmental problems we face, and that societal well-being is intricately tied to environmental health.  Environmental Studies not only recognizes the innate value of social diversity, we expand that sentiment to include all biodiversity and ecological systems.  Through ethical and diverse understandings centered on scientific fact, equity, stewardship, and cultural embrace, we prepare students to know, represent, and act for the environment.
