The Outdoor Classroom at AU

Augustana University is excited to announce the creation of an environmental studies major that offers graduates with the training and skills necessary to help them lead the world towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

Environmental studies at Augustana will be interdisciplinary as the major will bring together the tools and perspectives of multiple disciplines, ranging from environmental chemistry, photography, computer science and anthropology to environmental philosophy, theology, business and nature writing.

Students who choose to study environmental studies at the university will choose a disciplinary focus. The major culminates in a senior thesis and in the completion of a community-oriented practical project that aims to make a positive contribution to the relationships between humans and the environment in our community.

Prospective students wanting to know more about the major and career opportunities are encouraged to visit augie.edu/admission or contact the Augustana Office of Admission.
