Environmental Studies BA Mission Statement
The BA degree from the Environmental Studies program at CSU East Bay provides our graduates with a broadly based foundation for recognizing, assessing, and solving environmental problems at the local, regional, and global scale. Employing a faculty with degrees in subjects as varied as economics, physics, geography, geomorphology, and wildlife biology, we serve our university, our community, and our student body by providing a strongly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the environment and its modification and degradation by humans. Our majors possess the fundamental skills of critical assessment, articulate communication of complex ideas, and quantitative analysis. They practice independent evaluation of issues tempered by compassion, and have gained the means to become informed, responsible, and active citizens.
