Environmental Studies is one of three majors in Grace College’s Environmental Science Program, and it focuses on preparing you for environmental careers that are less technical but just as exciting. Environmental Studies is for students who want to educate and influence people’s actions in relation to the environment. This major includes behavioral science and political science in addition to environmental science, which are all critical to navigating environmental issues, and it also includes business instruction, which is important when managing a program or organization.
This major will equip you with practical knowledge and applicable skills to pursue a successful career in an ever-increasing number of environmental fields. Through our involvement with the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams at Grace College and the Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies, you will have even more unique opportunities for research and community internships.
