Studying the Environment

Overview

One of the distinctive features of UVM is its focus on studying the environment and environmental problems. Students interested in these issues have a rich array of choices. Many of these are within specific disciplines, but others offer the opportunity for multidisciplinary study. UVM has several multidisciplinary degree programs.

Environmental Studies is a curriculum offered to students from four different colleges and schools (the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Education and Social Services, and The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources) and is coordinated within the Environmental Program.

An Environmental Sciences major is jointly offered by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, and The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, with emphases in agriculture and the environment, conservation biology and biodiversity, ecological design, environmental analysis and assessment, environmental biology, environmental chemistry, environmental geology, environmental resources, and water resources.

The College of Engineering and Mathematics offers students the opportunity to pursue a degree in Environmental Engineering.
