As a field, environmental studies seeks to understand natural phenomena and human social institutional beliefs and practices and their interrelationships. To do this, it must engage in the scholarship of particular disciplines, as well as in the scholarship of integration. Goucher's Environmental Studies Program is designed to encourage thinking across disciplinary boundaries in order to prepare students for meaningful engagement with the central environmental questions and challenges that face our societies today and for their role as stewards of the global environment.
