Environmental Studies and Sustainability

Resources and research guidance in environmental studies, sustainability, and related fields.

Interdisciplinary Research

Environmental and sustainability studies are considered interdisciplinary because there are a number of aspects of these fields:

  • Humanities: religious and philosophical discussions of the environment, environmental ethics
  • Social Sciences: sociological aspects of human-environment interaction, corporate and political sustainability initiatives, environmental history
  • ​​Sciences: biological and chemical aspects of environment, sustainability and medicine

What does that mean when I'm researching?

  • You'll need to consult a wide variety of resources.
  • You'll probably need to start your research from one of the disciplines above, and find environmental/sustainability concerns within the resources on that subject.
  • You may end up doing research in more than one discipline.
