Advising & Resources

A major in Environmental Studies allows you the flexibility to pursue your academic interests. We understand it can be challenging to navigate the options available and we are here to support you.

We encourage you to contact the adviser, Ana Wieman, in person, by email or phone to map out a plan of study that aligns with your academic and professional goals.

“If I’m in the office, I’m happy to see students. Drop in hours are the best time to find me available, but please keep in mind that sometimes it’s necessary to cancel drop in hours without prior notification. I encourage students to send their questions by email as well.” – Ana.

 If you can’t make it during drop in hours, please send your question by email and if a special appointment is warranted Ana will set that up with you.
