The environmental studies program consists of four components: a one-semester introductory course, ENVS 112 (.5 unit); three semester courses in "core" subjects (biology, chemistry, and economics, for 1.5 units); a selection of 1.5 units (three courses) from affiliated courses in at least two departments; and a one-semester capstone seminar, ENVS 461 (.5 unit).
The concentration requires a total of 4 units. Affiliated courses are offered in anthropology, biology, chemistry, economics, philosophy, physics, political science, religious studies, and sociology.
Students interested in environmental science are encouraged to take ENVS 112 in their first year. More information first-years and new students is available in the academic course catalog.
