One of the greatest challenges currently facing humankind is the need to develop a sustainable and just society in a world with natural systems and limits under increasing strain from economic expansion and population growth. The Environmental Analysis (EA) Program is designed to prepare students for careers in environmental problem-solving fields, including urban planning; environmental sciences such as conservation science, global climate change science and policy, and resource management; environmental economics and policy; and health equity. It also provides a strong interdisciplinary background for those who seek careers in environmental education and community environmental action.
The EA Program is a five-college major, which combines the strengths of each of the Claremont Colleges to provide robust training for students addressing environmental issues. The program encourages students to study abroad as a vital (though not required) part of the major experience, to enable students to achieve a deeper appreciation of the global dimensions of the planet’s environmental issues. Specially focused environmental study abroad programs include locations in South Africa, New Zealand, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Botswana, and Australia.
