Why at E&H?
Students who love the outdoors often want to find a career where they can be out in it as much as possible. This is the place for that!
Our Geography students study the multiple forces that determine what places are like. They learn all about climate, soil, geomorphology, mapping, land use, economic development, legal systems, hazards, migration, urbanization, geopolitics, and ethnic diversity. They also learn to use Geo Info Systems (GIS). They go on to careers in planning, economic development, Geo Info Systems, resource conservation, land management, teaching, and recreation management.
Our Environmental Studies majors learn many aspects of Environmental Science and Policy. The course work includes Biology and Chemistry but focuses more on environmental problem-solving. Courses include Environmental Monitoring, Environment and Planning, Wildlife Monitoring, Environmental Policy, and Research Experience. They go on to careers in environmental protection, habitat restoration, wildlife management, recreation management, environmental research, and teaching.
Our new Food Studies minor allows students to become proficient in organic food production while also understanding the food system as a whole - how it works, what needs to change, in order to provide healthy and sustainable food supplies for families while protecting the ecosystem.
