The Global Human Environment

The global human environment concentration studies the complex biological and cultural interactions of human populations through time with their varied environmental and geographic contexts. This subject is the focus of the subfields of evolution, ecology, anthropology, epidemiology, and forensics. These courses accentuate the dynamic interactions of these factors and their resulting effects on the intricate natural cycles of the biosphere, and methods of health risk assessment.

Global Human Environment: Specialization in Business/Environmental Economics

While scientific and social considerations are vitally important in determining and executing environmental policy, the universes of business and government ultimately incorporate financial and management arguments for the final implementation of environmental decisions. Persons involved in environmental fields from either universe must have the necessary tools to understand and to persuasively influence environmental decision-making. The environmental studies program offers these tools to our students. Several courses are recommended to students who want electives in business or environmental economics in addition to environmental science courses in microeconomics and environmental economics. Eight elective credits of course work may also be taken in the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business out of the total of 36 credits required for the M.S. in environmental studies. These courses may be taken only in consultation with environmental program and business school advisers.
