Summer Research Fellowships
The environmental studies department offers two summer-research fellowships for students to pursue independent research. Past projects have included designing a new campus garden, conducting a feasibility study of green roofs, examining perceptions of climate change in rural Alaska, and comparing uranium mining in Kazakhstan and Southern Utah. Students have presented their work in art galleries and academic conferences around the country.
More than 20 percent of environmental-studies students study abroad. We work closely with the Office for Global Engagement to identify high-quality programs that meet our program goals and align with students' learning objectives.
The environmental studies program also has partnerships with two study abroad program providers: Round River Conservation Studies and The School for Field Studies.
