Change the world

Environmental Studies majors and minors conduct field research with faculty and fellow students, study abroad, pursue internships, and engage on sustainability work at Beloit College as well as in the community. Alumni have gone on to careers in the arts, journalism, community-based activism, education, environmental law, the EPA, industry, and international organizations such as the United Nations.

Ke “Duke” Ding’22 chose Beloit for the relationships he knew he’d foster here — studying with classmates, running track, and helping fellow international students apply for jobs. “Going to a liberal arts college is not the common choice for Chinese students. But for me, if I had to choose again, I would still choose Beloit, 100 percent.”
