Environmental Studies Program

    Introducing our first full time faculty member, Professor Barry Muchnick


Environmental Studies offers an interdisciplinary foundation for understanding interrelations between the natural environment and human life.

The program offers a minor examining interrelations between the natural environment and human life, including scientific, aesthetic, cultural, and political perspectives.

The goal of the minor at St. Mary’s is to encourage students to gain a comprehension of the complexities of environmental systems, problems, and policies. Through investigation of the social sciences and humanities as well as the natural and physical sciences, this program provides students with broad-based preparation for future decisions regarding the environment.
