Welcome!

Welcome to the Department of Environmental Studies at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF).

Environmental Studies Program

The Environmental Studies program emphasizes interdisciplinary social science, humanities, and natural science approaches to environmental understanding and stewardship. The programs maintain a strong academic orientation, facilitating student and faculty engagement with fundamental environmental challenges and dynamics such as multiple and conflicting levels of environmental governance, participatory democracy, sustainable development, uses and limits of scientific prediction, discourses of environment, cultural expressions of nature, risk, and ecological sustainability.

Located in Syracuse, New York, nestled between the beautiful Finger Lakes region and the Adirondack Mountains, our department is home to the state's premier Environmental Studies undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as ESF's outstanding Environmental Writing Program. With a campus neighboring Syracuse University, students at ESF experience a small campus community along with the resources a large university has to offer.
