USC Undergraduate Environmental Studies Program

Housed in the USC College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, the Environmental Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the serious environmental problems that we face in this century.Through its curriculum, the program prepares the leaders, thinkers and planners necessary to meet these challenges.

The Environmental Studies Program offers students either a B.A. or B.S. degree in environmental studies. Within each degree there are three concentrations, all built upon a central, interdisciplinary 48-unit core. The common core requires courses in environmental studies, social sciences, and natural sciences.  Additionally, students can select from three concentrations: Sustainability, Energy and Society; Oceans, Life and People; and Climate, Earth and Environment. Each concentration culminates in the capstone experience of a senior seminar focusing on environmental problem-solving by interdisciplinary teams.
