This innovative interdisciplinary program combines the study of human behavior and environmental science. It emphasizes the pivotal role that economic markets, politics, and human behavior play in creating and solving environmental problems. With an emphasis on social and environmental justice, it looks at the impact of sustainability programs on the global environment and human communities.
From your first to final class, you will learn by doing. Service and experiential learning are integral to our major. Mason is the first university in Virginia to achieve a STARS Gold Rating for campus sustainability, and you will contribute to Mason’s sustainability goals in hands-on projects on your own campus.
You will also work regionally. Our location near Washington, DC provides access to internships and service learning opportunities at government agencies, green businesses, and environmental non-profits. We partner with innovative DC area farms, including urban growers, that combine sustainable farming and social justice. You can earn credit pursuing field studies opportunities at regional conservation sites or enroll in alternative break and study abroad programs tailored to students who are passionate about sustainability, conservation, and environmental justice.
