The Environmental Studies & Sciences Program at Rhodes College offers an innovative curriculum that allows students to combine study in social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and fine arts. The program encourages a personalized combination of interdisciplinary coursework and a sustained examination of global and local contexts environmental issues from many perspectives.

Based on their specific interests, students can major in Environmental Studies (B.A.) or Environmental Sciences (B.S.), or they can choose an Environmental Studies or Environmental Sciences minor. Majors and minors also have common experiences, beginning with an interdisciplinary team-taught core course called “Environment and Society,” as well as an Environmental Experience which takes students off-campus to put their study into action. Students in both majors also take a course in Geographic Information Systems and a Senior Seminar which helps draw together the threads of their academic experiences.
