Physics - Environmental Studies

You understand that environmental problems are multi-causal phenomena that require multidimensional solutions. It’s why you’re looking for an interdisciplinary program — one that combines your interest in the physical sciences with your passion for the environment, one that prepares you to be a successful scientist as well as an effective environmental citizen and leader. Whitman’s physics-environmental studies major may be the program for you.

These requirements are in addition to core courses required of all environmental studies majors.
