What is a concentration?

As an Environmental Studies major, you can tailor your selection of courses to match your academic goals and professional interests. A concentration is a way to organize your major around particular Environmental Studies themes and issues. A concentration is also an effective way to highlight your individual areas of expertise and training as you enter the job market or pursue graduate school.

Organizing your course work around a concentration is optional and does not change the name of your degree (B.A. with a major in Environmental Studies). Pre-identified concentrations can be a starting point, or you can create your own concentration.
