Marlboro College

To the faculty at Marlboro, the term “environmental studies” is synonymous with “human ecology.” That is, it is a study of the way that humans interact with their environment. Such a broad definition suggests that an interdisciplinary or cross-disciplinary approach is warranted, and indeed, students should study the environment from the special perspectives and knowledge of the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The integration of the various disciplines into a coordinated approach to environmental questions is the challenge of this field.
