The Global Environmental Change and Sustainability (GECS) program provides a supportive yet challenging academic home for students who are passionate about the environment and who want to make a positive difference in the world.

The interdisciplinary GECS major and minor introduce students to the Earth’s living and nonliving systems and how humans interact with and affect those systems. The GECS curriculum is solution-focused, providing students with the tools they need to become the next generation of problem-solvers. Courses examine how the powerful tools of science and policy can be brought to bear on environmental problems and the challenge of developing a more sustainable and equitable society.

GECS faculty include Dr. Alexios Monopolis and Dr. Rebecca Kelly.
