Department of Environmental Studies

The Department of Environmental Studies is home to over 80 declared majors, second majors, or minors, across a variety of academic disciplines, in either our environmental ethics and policy (BA) or environmental science (BS) program.  We also cooperate with the environmental engineering students and faculty, and those in the Pamplin School of Business who are working for sustainable business practices.

The department is anchored by 10 dedicated faculty members who have received praise in a variety of publications and media outlets, as well as received recognition for their expertise in the field through a host of awards and honors.
