Environmental Studies Courses

Environmental Studies offers a wide range of innovative courses. Not all courses are offered every semester, so be sure to check with an ES advisor to pick courses that make the most sense for you.


The Environmental Studies Program at UW Oshkosh is an interdisciplinary, liberal arts program. Students get a firm grounding in introductory and intermediate coursework in the natural sciences, social sciences, and environmental humanities. They then choose upper-level coursework in areas that interest them, and pick either an emphasis in “Environmental Science” or “Environmental Policy and Values.” No matter what they choose, students emerge from our program with a well-rounded liberal arts education and a firm grounding in the science, policy, and values of sustainability.



The Environmental Studies Program has partnered with the Sustainability Institute for Regional Transformations (SIRT) and many other departments on campus to offer a range of sustainability certificates. These small, innovative certificate programs provide training in specific areas like communication, education, and leadership, and connect students with hands-on internships and research opportunities to prepare them for a wide range of green careers. To learn more, ask your ES Advisor or check out the program on the SIRT Sustainability Certificate website. 



Here is useful information about the nature of the program, the curriculum, courses, academic advising and course registration. We strongly encourage students to meet with an advisor before they pick courses, to ensure efficient progress through the program.
