Environmental Studies at Davidson

The Environmental Studies Department offers both a major and an interdisciplinary minor, and a wide range of courses and opportunities to collaborate with faculty on research.

The major provides overview courses, breadth and depth components, and a capstone project in the senior year. The interdisciplinary minor gives students a broad exposure to a range of environmental issues.

Both the major and the interdisciplinary minor use multiple disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in addressing the complexity of environmental studies today, from local concerns to national policies to global issues and their solutions. A diverse faculty facilitates a problem-solving approach to environmental challenges with significant exposure beyond the classroom, in field and laboratory settings, internships, and international research contexts.

If you are interested in additional information about Environmental Studies, please email department chair, Prof. Brad Johnson, at brjohnson@davidson.edu.
