Environmental Studies

  • Overview

    William Peace University’s Environmental Studies program provides a strong interdisciplinary foundation in the scientific, economic, cultural and policy elements of the environment.

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 10% of new jobs by 2033 will be “green” jobs. As an Environmental Studies (ENV) major at WPU, you will tailor the program to your own professional interests with a small, focused core of required courses combined with a menu of courses from several disciplines, including Biology, Chemistry, Anthropology, Political Science, Business Administration, Global Studies and Communication. You will be able to extend your learning beyond the classroom through internships and opportunities to do research related to environmental issues with the Biology Department.

    Environmental Studies is an excellent starting point if you’re interested in pursuing an advanced degree in the environmental disciplines, law or medicine. Alternatively, you will be qualified for an entry-level career position in diverse fields like environmental safety, education, risk assessment, environmental planning, ecotourism and many more.
