Environmental and Sustainability Studies
Our environment is changing on a global level, and now we’ve reached a tipping point. Over the next several years, international organizations, governments, businesses, and individuals will be tasked more than ever before with finding creative, sustainable solutions to protect Earth’s climate and natural resources.
These efforts will require skilled scientists — but just as important, they’ll also need skilled thinkers and policy-makers. They’ll need people who can manage projects and persuade audiences, who are able to both study an ecosystem and inspire others to protect it. As a student in York College’s Environmental and Sustainability Studies program, you’ll be prepared to do that valuable work.
The Environmental and Sustainability Studies major bridges the gap between high-impact science and the change-making policies and processes necessary in bringing that science to life. You’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference on whatever level you choose, whether you’re interested in local organic farming, regional waterways, or national legislation.
