Here’s a list of the top ten undergraduate environmental programs in the U.S. The top 5 are:
1. Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin
2. State University of New York College of Environmental Science & Forestry (SUNY-ESF) in Syracuse, NY
3. Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont
4. Cornell University, Department of Natural Resources
5. Duke University Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Studiesin Durham, NC
The list ranks schools according to quality of education and the types of experience and research opportunity each environmental studies program provides.
I’ve just graduated from SUNY Purchase College, and I have to say, it had an amazing Environmental Studies program.
The school is relatively small (5000), but it’s very student-oriented, so students are very impowered to make change.
On top of that, the class-sizes are small, and the professors are very personable.
Check out the fun video (that I’m in!) about the program, if you’re interested. It’s one of the cheapest state schools out there, but it’s DEFINITELY worth the money.
Other great schools include the University of California, which has several campuses in forested areas or in areas next to the sea (if those are your areas of interest), and California State University, especially Humboldt State, which is in the coastal redwood forest and has multiple environmental programs, including botany and forestry. You might also consider U of Colorado-Boulder (http://www.colorado.edu), which takes pride in its environmental focus and even has a program for environmental journalism.
Also, Evergreen State University in Washington is known for its environmental focus, and its campus is in a beautifully forested area outside of Seattle.
