Introduction to the Program

Ohio Wesleyan’s cross-disciplinary Environmental Studies program offers you a variety of perspectives regarding the environment. The program includes nearly 20 faculty members who specialize in natural sciences, social sciences, art, and humanities. The Environmental Studies Program at Ohio Wesleyan shares its broadest goals with the University, a devotion to a broad yet integrated approach to a liberal arts education, the development of leadership capabilities (through diverse and integrated learning), and service. When the Environmental Studies major is combined with a traditional liberal arts major the student is well equipped for leadership, service, and continued learning in a world where environmental issues are of vital importance.
