Choosing Your Path
Susquehanna’s environmental studies curriculum offers many different pathways through the major so you can follow your passions and interests. Foundation courses provide a rigorous backbone of study across the sciences, humanities, and social sciences, but a broad array of electives from 16 different majors give each student the chance to design their own trajectory. That could be advanced work focused in the sciences, economics, business, cultural studies, social sciences, communications or political science. Working closely with your advisor, you’ll create your own individual course of study that puts you on a path to leadership in a variety of careers, from business, finance and education, to government, the arts, journalism, outdoor recreation, law, politics and community development.
