School: Luther College University
Faculty: Arts
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Environmental Studies
Description: The environment refers to everything that surrounds us, including human beings. Under such a broad umbrella, environmental studies encompasses the study of how human beings connect with the physical structures, institutions and economies we build, the politics, language and culture by which we communicate, and the planet and its intricate variety of living and non-living elements and processes. Environmental Studies is rooted in questions that include:

What role does scientific knowledge have in environmental decision-making? How will humans adapt to the conflict between an economy based on growth and a planet with finite resources? Are nature and culture separate concepts? How are economic exploitation, environmental justice and environmental racism linked? What are the distinctions between environmental policy and environmental politics? Who defines what constitutes an “environmental issue”? Who benefits, and pays, for environmental reform? How do we systematically address environmental problems that may be unsystematic?
