Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Humanities
Faculty Director: Dr. David Taylor
EHM students created a documentary about Long Island Planner Lee Koppelman.
The Environmental Humanities major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree, draws together a range of disciplines to explore human understanding and interpretation of nature. The curriculum integrates disciplines from social sciences and the humanities including: writing, literature, philosophy, history, anthropology, archaeology, and art and architectural history.
The major prepares students to lead efforts to revitalize public understanding of the natural world through nature education, museum work, community organizing, literacy education, advocacy, business, writing and the arts. They may also choose to pursue advanced degrees in literature, journalism, education, social work, the arts, the social sciences and law.
The major builds on the interdisciplinary core curriculum offered at Stony Brook University’s Sustainability Program. Students will enroll in major-specific courses in their junior and senior year. As part of the degree requirements, students will work in teams with students enrolled in related majors to solve problems collaboratively. Students are encouraged to take advantage of local and international independent research opportunities, internships and field camps to gain real-world experience.
