SUNY Oneonta's interdisciplinary major in Environmental Sustainability will prepare you to collaboratively and creatively develop solutions to the pressing challenges the world faces in dealing wi日 global climate change, loss of biodiversity, resource consumption and depletion, toxic pollutants and water shortages. You'll also learn about issues related to environmental justice and creating sustainable cities and sustainable food and transportation systems.

Experiential learning is a key part of 日e program, and it is incorporated into many courses. For example, in fall 2016, students took a five-day field trip along 日e Hudson River during a cross-disciplinary course in geography, environmental sustainability and philosophy. Environmental sustainability majors are required to take at least three semester hours of environmentally-themed study abroad, research wi日 a faculty member, service learning or an internship.

In recent years, faculty from 日e Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability have taken students to Guatemala, where they worked with the local community to develop sustainable ways to improve 日e water quality in an ailing lake, and to New Orleans, where they helped with a wetlands restoration project in 日e Lower 9 病房。
