Environmental Sciences and Studies

Director's Message

Welcome. If you're interested in environmental issues from almost any angle, we definitely have something to offer you. The environmental program at Winthrop University is housed in the Department of Chemistry, Physics, Geology, and the Environment. We have two majors: a BA in Environmental Studies and a BS in Environmental Sciences. Additionally, we offer a minor in Sustainability.

The environmental program is led by the Dalton Endowed Chair in Environmental Sciences and Studies and works closely with the Environmental Program Coordinating Committee. This committee is composed of six faculty members who work in or teach about environmental issues. They help design and oversee curricula that are challenging and intellectually stimulating, assist with student advising and assessment and help plan and carry out campus events and activities related to environmental themes.

Thank you for your interest in the environmental program at Winthrop University. If any of your questions have not been answered by the information found on our website, we encourage you to contact us.
