Studying Environmental Studies at Kenyon

Guided by faculty with expertise in such wide-ranging fields as climate change, wetlands preservation, macroecology and microbiology, students study the complex systems that lie at the heart of humans’ interaction with the natural world. The landscape surrounding Kenyon provides a unique living laboratory, giving students the opportunity to conduct field research in the riparian habitats of the Kokosing River and the pastures, prairies, wetlands and woodlands of the Kenyon Farm, Kokosing Nature Preserve and the 500-acre Brown Family Environmental Center.

“The Kokosing River sauntered along with no particular rush, like it savored the journey and questioned the need for a destination.”
