Environmental Studies & Planning
For over forty years, beginning in 1972, ENSP has offered a distinctive undergraduate program of interdisciplinary study aimed at the analysis, management, and solution of environmental problems and issues. Students and faculty work together across disciplines to develop an understanding of environmental sustainability in all its dimensions. Specifically, the program combines a core education in ecology, physical science, social sciences, and the humanities with targeted coursework in an area of expertise, including energy, conservation, water, and planning. This involves integrating knowledge from multiple disciplines to understand the functioning of ecological systems and the nature of human impact upon these systems at local, regional, and global scales.
