Welcome to the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Oregon.
Building on our university’s long tradition of environmental research and activism, we train leaders in creative problem solving, critical thinking, and responsible citizenship.
Our program sets the standard in interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration, with more than 100 participating faculty from thirty campus programs and departments. Our degree programs are flexible and tailored to meet specific educational and career goals, providing students with the opportunities to work alongside world-class scholars and researchers, develop concrete skills and analytical abilities, and gain hands-on experience relevant to careers in government agencies, non-government organizations, private industry, and academic fields.
