Dr. Katharine Jack, Director
Department of Anthropology
416 Dinwiddie Hall


The environmental studies major is an interdisciplinary major drawing courses from the School of Liberal Arts, School of Sciences and Engineering, School of Public Health, School of Business, and School of Architecture.  The environmental studies major (EVST)  is a coherent and definitive compilation of the university's wide range of environmental concentration courses. Under the guidance of Director Katharine Jack (Anthropology), Melissa Bailes (English), Michelle Kohler (English), Grant S. McCall (Anthropology), Laura McKinney (Sociology), Jason Nesbitt (Anthropology), and Christopher B. Rodning (Anthropology), Marcello Canuto (Anthropology), and Amy Lessen (Bioenvironmental Research) the major has been designed to not only provide ample opportunity for students' interdisciplinary educational development, but also various opportunities for further enrichment and knowledge of  key environmental and humanistic concerns.

Through internships, a required senior colloquium, courses through several of Tulane's most prestigious schools and colleges, along with opportunities for independent study and honors thesis, the program hopes to provide its majors with a conclusive, comprehensive undergraduate liberal arts education in environmental studies.
