Environmental Studies News

Temple University’s College of Liberal Arts offers students the opportunity to minor or major in Environmental Studies. Offered through our Department of Geography and Urban Studies, the programs teach students to better understand and respect their environment. The faculty teaches students how environmental decision making in one part of the world affects people in other parts. By illustrating those connections they help to develop the theoretical and methodological basis that empowers graduates to make meaningful, positive change. Follow the stories here to understand the impact of those changes and please contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell.
