Our Mission

Both biogeophysical systems and human societies (cultures, economies, political regimes) are nested complex systems involving numerous interactions. Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) is a transdisciplinary program that examines the interdependence of human societies and the physical environment. The program strives to ensure that majors have a solid background in the physical sciences, the humanities, and economics and policy--and understand what sustainability means in the real world. We aim to enhance students' understanding of the complexities of environmental and urban issues and their awareness of interrelationships between built and "natural" environments.
