Second, it examines how the areas of environmental arts and humanities inform and are informed by the perspectives of environmental science and policy. Finally, as the defining core of the major, students explore how the arts and humanities enrich our understanding of humanity’s complex, evolving relation to the world we inhabit and inform our responses to the many dimensions of environmental issues.
