Jason Hamilton, Associate Professor and Chair
The Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences offers two majors. Environmental studies focuses on the human dimension, including practical application, values, and aesthetics, while providing a strong science background. Environmental science focuses on the sciences and prepares students to conduct original research designed to solve environmental problems in the context of social values and economic and political reality.
Each year the Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences accepts a limited number of internal transfer students. Information and application forms are available on the department website. Applications are reviewed twice per semester: after the first week of classes and after midterm grades are available. In addition to the requirements for transfer into the School of Humanities and Sciences, students must have received at least a B+ in one ENVS course. Meeting the requirements to apply for transfer to a degree program in Environmental Studies and Sciences does not guarantee admission.
