Advisor — Dr. Krygier, Geology-Geography
Environmental Studies at Ohio Wesleyan is a broad, cross-disciplinary approach to the environment, encompassing the natural and social sciences, arts, and humanities within the context of the liberal arts. Environmental Studies at Ohio Wesleyan consists of nearly 50 courses taught by more than 20 faculty throughout the university. Students majoring in environmental studies must complete a second major in a traditional course of study. There are no restrictions on the choice of the second major. Environmental Studies majors should coordinate their two majors with the help of the Director of Environmental Studies and faculty in their second major. In particular, students are encouraged to select elective courses in the Environmental Studies program that contribute to their future career and graduate education goals.
The successful completion of both the environmental studies major and a second major requires forethought and planning. Accordingly, students are strongly encouraged to declare their major by March 15 of their sophomore year. Students interested in majoring in environmental studies are urged to meet with Dr. John Krygier at their earliest convenience.
