  • Course description
    The Environmental Studies major is interdisciplinary in nature. The program's core courses provide students with a common interdisciplinary base to enable them to learn basic data analysis, understand foundational issues, and see the relationship of environmental ideas from several fields of study.

    The core is not limited to classroom learning: students will do research in campus and area laboratories, work in the field with professionals in government, industry or the nonprofit sector, and strive to use their classroom, research, and field education and experiences in practical efforts to improve the Helena-area environment.

    The areas of concentration enable students with varying academic and career interests and abilities, who share a common interest in the environment, to become proficient in an area that best prepares them for their future work.
