The Art-Environmental Studies major is designed to serve students whose deep interest in environmental issues dovetails with a developing capacity for creative thinking and production in the visual arts. Students will prepare an original body of work/project for the Senior Thesis Exhibition, a written artist statement, and successfully complete an oral defense of the work with a committee of 3-4 advisors from the Art; Art History and Visual Culture Studies; and Environmental Studies faculty. The thesis should clearly reflect an environmental focus and synthesis of ideas gleaned from Art, Environmental Studies and AHVCS coursework.

In addition to the courses required of all environmental studies majors, the following are required for the Art-Environmental Studies major:
