Guided Pathways: Environmental

Environmental history is the study of the reciprocal relationships between people and the natural world. Environmental historians explore the historically and culturally derived ways in which human societies have engaged nature, the influence of nature on human life, and the consequences of these interactions for both nature and people. Environmental historians utilize interdisciplinary methods that combine traditional historical source materials with research from the natural sciences. The environmental history track will help prepare students for further academic work as well as potential careers in environmental law, land and resource management, environmental science, and government agencies.
