There are certain courses that must be taken by all Environmental Studies students.
The following courses must be taken by all Environmental Studies students.
While the core requirements are necessary for all Environmental Studies students, students should also seek out a thesis sponsor as early as their second or third year to focus further on their interests. As highlighted in the requirements checklist, the thesis sponsor and student work together to determine 5 courses that prepare the student to work with that sponsor in a particular area. Specializations in Environmental Studies usually fall into one of five listed tracks, however, other options are also possible based on student and faculty interests, e.g., environmental art or nature writing.
If students are interested in having a slash, with Environmental Studies as the second area of emphasis, the student needs to complete the core requirements for Environmental Studies. If Environmental Studies is the primary AOC for the slash, the student needs to take all of the requirements necessary of an Environmental Studies AOC (the core requirements, track requirements and other requirements).
Submittal of the Provisional AOC form and checklist to the ESSC during the fifth term at New College for approval.
Environmental Studies Thesis Grant application during the sixth or seventh term at New College.
