Why study environmental studies? The Environmental Studies Program at the University of Kansas, established in 1971, is one of the oldest environmental studies programs in the country. The KU Environmental Studies Program provides a rigorous interdisciplinary education and stimulates exchange concerning the environment from natural science, social science, and humanities perspectives. Learning Pathways , thematic areas of study that match student interest to the environmental expertise of our faculty, are a key aspect of our unique program.
