Environmental Studies

Sewanee’s Environmental Studies Program is expansively interdisciplinary, offering students the chance to select two pathways for study: Environment and Sustainability and Environmental Arts and Humanities.  Additional curricular options include a Certificate in Watershed Science and a Minor in Religion and Environment.

Graduates of the Program develop not only broad understanding of today’s environmental challenges, but also deep knowledge of selected “green” disciplines and research methods needed to address these challenges. Students of Environmental Studies benefit especially from the unparalleled physical and cultural resources open to them through field study in the living laboratory of Sewanee’s 13,000-acre land-base.
