St. Thomas offers a degree in Environmental Studies with a concentration area in Geography. In addition to five core Environmental Studies courses, students in this concentration area take four lab science courses selected from Biology, Chemistry, and Geology, a statistics course, and an additional 24 credits in Geography as part of your concentration area proposal (chosen in consultation with the Geography department chair). Because most modern environmental problems have a spatial context, many Environmental Studies majors find that courses in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are especially helpful and make them very competitive for internships and attractive to graduate schools and employers. Our GIS minor is a useful match with a major in Environmental Studies.
