Information for students considering undergraduate environmental studies.
General CU information is available on the prospective students website. There is specific information for freshman, transfer, and international students. You may also sign up for campus visits through this website.
Here is a link to the Arts and Sciences core curriculum requirements.
You will need to satisfy those A&S requirements before you graduate; some may be taken at community colleges. Transfer information on the Admissions website may be helpful.
Most courses are offered during the day, but evening and online options are available through Continuing Education:
It is possible to take courses through the ACCESS program administered by Continuing Education at either the undergraduate or graduate level even if you are not formally admitted to CU. Please choose courses in this program carefully to ensure they apply to your degree requirements.
Declaring an ENVS Major
Major declaration meetings are held every week or two throughout each fall and spring semester and less often during the summer semester. Check the posted list on the Academic Advising web site.
You must register for and attend a major declaration meeting to declare the ENVS major.
Environmental studies offers Internships for credit.
Career Services coordinates internships for pay.
Decisions about how high school transcripts are evaluated or how courses transfer are made by the admissions office rather than individual academic departments. The ENVS undergraduate advisor deals only with the academic progress of current environmental studies majors.
Your first contact with the academic advisor will be at orientation. There is no need to make an appointment with an advisor before orientation.
Current students may make appointments by logging in to the Academic Advising web site. You will need your ID and IdentiKey to log on.
For general questions, please contact the ENVS office.
Student assistants to the administrative staff are available to meet with prospective students and their families to talk about the ENVS major and life at CU Boulder. If you are planning a trip to campus, contact the ENVS office in advance to arrange a meeting with a student assistant and/or the opportunity to sit in on a class.
