At the heart of Southwestern’s Environmental Studies program lies a list of provocative and urgent questions that students will be challenged to investigate.
What is humankind’s relationship to its environment?
How do natural systems operate?
What are some of today’s most pressing environmental issues?
How do we address the complicated issue of environmental justice?
What are key environmental issues on the Southwestern campus and in Central Texas?
From these starting points, environmental studies students will begin an examination of the world around them that will continue through their time at Southwestern and into their lives beyond the classroom.
