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.
