Welcome to Environmental Studies!

Welcome to the Environmental Studies Undergraduate Program website!

Environmental Studies is a field of study that views the earth and our place in it, as a set of complex, interacting socio-ecological systems. At UC Santa Cruz, we use an interdisciplinary approach to study the social, cultural, and scientific relationships with the environment. Courses in environmental studies provide training not only in the physical and social sciences, but also in writing, critical thinking, quantitative analysis, project and team management, and more. Environmental Studies alumni are making a difference in conservation organizations, habitat restoration, sustainable agriculture, environmental mediation, biodiversity research, and many other areas.
