The Environmental Studies Program trains leaders in creative problem solving, critical thinking, and responsible citizenship.
Building on the University of Oregon’s long tradition of environmental research and activism, our program sets the standard in interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration with more than 100 participating faculty from thirty campus programs and departments. ENVS 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-governmental organizations, private industry, and academic fields.
ENVS is co-sponsoring two book readings with the English Department, the English Department Diversity Committee, and the Ethnic Studies Department. Priscilla Ybarra will be reading from her book Writing the Goodlife: Mexican Americans and the Environment on March 1st at 4:00 PM.
Sarah Wald will be reading from her book The Nature of California: Race, Citizenship, and Farming since the Dustbowl, followed by a response from Sarah Jaquette Ray, on March 2nd at 4:00 PM. Both readings will take place in the Knight Library Browsing Room.

“Solving puzzles as part of an interdisciplinary team has been a consistent source inspiration for me,” says Lucas Silva. “The transdisciplinary collaborative spirit observed through campus, and particularly salient in my home departments (ENVS & Geography), is the single most important factor that drew me to UO.” Indeed, Silva exemplifies this spirit of interdisciplinarity through his work and contributions to academia.
