Catalog: Fall 2007 - Spring 2008

Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies (ES) planning unit offers broadly interdisciplinary academic studies within and across three distinctive thematic areas outlined below. Evergreen's unique approach to environmental studies emphasizes hands-on, experiential learning in the field and surrounding communities. Many programs include extended field trips within the U.S. and several programs include fieldwork in Central America. Human Communities and the Environment addresses environmental policy, ethics and human relations with, and ways of thinking about, the natural world. It includes community studies, ecological agriculture, environmental communication, environmental economics, environmental health, environmental history, environmental law and policy, geography, land-use planning and policy, political economy and sustainability.
