Important Notice:

The Environmental Studies department has developed a new curriculum, which was recently approved by the College.  This new curriculum balances breadth, depth, and rigor and matches the expertise of the faculty members in our growing department.  It also supports the automated degree audit program in the Banner system, so that students can track their progress towards graduation.  The new curriculum includes new degree requirements for the B.A. in Environmental Studies and the B.S in Environmental Science.  The new curriculum, with these new degree requirements, applies to students entering Dickinson beginning in the Fall 2016.  The new curriculum is described on the department’s webpage and in the College Bulletin.
