The ENVS undergraduate major is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes science, policy and ethics.
The ENVS major requires a minimum of 57 credit hours, and overlaps with several College of Arts and Sciences Core areas including Natural Sciences, Contemporary Societies, Ideals and Values, and Upper Division Written Communication.
To complete the ENVS major students take foundational courses in sciences, policy, ethics, economics, writing and math, as well an internship or field course, and a capstone course. Fifteen credit hours of “specialization” courses are required in one content area such as climate and energy, natural resources, or sustainable development.
The major requirements and the list of courses that fulfill them are listed under the ENVS Major.
Other tools available to students to navigate the ENVS major are:
1) the semester list of course offerings
2) the course descriptions of semester topics courses
3) the degree audit system documenting academic progress
4) one-on-one appointments with Professional Academic Advisors, accessed using the Academic Advising Center's on-line Advising Appointment System
To declare the Environmental Studies major please attend a major declaration meeting found via the via the Academic Advising Center's Advising Appointment System. Once in the system, go to Major/Minor Declaration Info and select ENVS - Environmental Studies from the Department drop-down box.
Environmental Studies students are encouraged to seek opportunities at the university such as study abroad, double majors and minors, certificate programs, scholarships, honors theses, and involvement in student groups including the ENVS Club, and the E-Center.
At the University of Colorado Boulder the variety of environmentally related activities, both academic and extracurricular, available to students is world class. All CU students, faculty and staff are welcome to sign up for the ENVS major listserv, which announces activities and opportunities, both academic and extracurricular, available to undergraduate students.
