The University of Vermont is a national leader in the study of the environment. The College of Arts & Sciences offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies (ENVS). ENVS students go both broad and deep. As students in the liberal arts, there are opportunities to sample throughout the curriculum while developing an expertise in environmental studies, through coursework in ecology, history, geography and political science. Students can choose a concentrated study of courses in a particular interest, pursue a hands on experience and are encouraged to study abroad.
As of 2022, UVM is streamlining pathways for studying the Environment. The Environmental Studies major (available in the Rubenstein School for students who enrolled in Fall 2021 and prior) will be offered exclusively in the College of Arts and Sciences for incoming students as of Spring 2022.
