The environmental studies program at Manchester, established in 1971, is among the oldest ES programs in the country. The main goals of the program are to educate students about the state of the local and global environment, and to prepare majors to fill vital roles in environmental science, education, public policy, and other related fields.
Through research and special study opportunities on and off campus, students gain valuable experience in the lab and in the field. For environmental studies majors at Manchester, "getting your feet wet" may mean just that! You may find yourself wading in a creek researching fish habitats or standing in the ocean in the Bahamas studying sand dollars. Or maybe you'll find yourself in a forest, surveying bird populations and vegetation.
- To provide students experiential learning opportunities and rigorous academics rooted in natural sciences, political sciences, economics, and philosophy to better understand the human endeavor in the context of responsible environmental stewardship.
