Welcome to Environmental Studies

Central Michigan University offers an interdisciplinary major and minor in Environmental Studies. Focusing on the complex relationships between humans and the natural environment, this program is designed to meet the needs of students who plan environmental careers, as well as those who simply care about environmental issues. Environmental Studies combines elements of biology, geology, economics, political science, law & regulation, and environmental studies.

Students can select one of two concentrations: Environmental Science or Environmental Policy. Environmental scientists are involved in many aspects of environmental protection, monitoring, assessment, and remediation. Environmental policy specialists participate in many relevant activities, such as environmental planning, regulation and policy making. Students majoring in Environmental Studies will also have the opportunity to gain practical experience by completing a six-week internship with a cooperative agency or private company.
