Sustainability and Environmental Studies (SENS) is an interdisciplinary program centered on ecological design—the purposeful integration of human actions with the structures and functions of the natural world. The goal of the SENS program is to help students acquire the knowledge and practical skills necessary to prosper in a world that faces unprecedented threats to environmental and economic well-being, while contributing to the development of resilient communities and a sustainable society.

The College does not offer a major in Sustainability and Environmental Studies. However, students interested in proposing an Independent Major in this area should consult with the SENS Program Chair or faculty members.
