Why environmental studies?
Get real / The environmental studies program at Roanoke gives students the opportunity to explore real-world solutions for a sustainable world.
Get connected / Students examine the many interconnected factors that shape environmental realities-including the natural sciences, culture, economics, resource management and politics. Further, they are encouraged to consider their own place in the mix and how their actions can create significant change.
Get out there / The environmental program takes students far beyond the traditional classroom.
