The AUSB BA Program has the most flexible scheduling options and is designed to help students explore and develop their own interests and to enhance or enrich a direction in life that is meaningful to self, to others and to society. There are several concentration options for students to choose from.

 

Environmental Studies Concentration

The Environmental Studies Concentration prepares students for graduate work in environmental studies, environmental policy, environmental advocacy, and other related fields including green energy and business. It provides a meaningful background for a variety of other professional careers, as knowledge in environmental studies is central to many professions.

Students who intend to pursue doctoral-level graduate work in environmental studies should plan on independent study in an area of research beyond the required Research Methods and Statistics course sequence. In their studies, they should be sure to develop library research skills and familiarity with some research in their field of interest. The Advisor should also be consulted concerning particular course work.

The Environmental Studies concentration prepares students for careers in: environmental health and management; natural resources and conservation; outdoor and environmental education; environmental law, policy, and regulation; environmental advocacy; international environmental issues; and non-profit or non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
