Center for Sustainability and the Environment

Where committed students initiate real
movement toward change.

Let’s face it: you love this planet, and it’s where you’ll spend a lot of your time. At Albion College's Center for Sustainability and the Environment, you’ll also spend a lot of time making it a better place. You’ll explore the intersections of nature and society, learning how to become an effective steward of our world.

Our program features majors in environmental science, environmental studies, and sustainability studies, as well as concentrations in environmental science and environmental studies. The concentrations combine with traditional liberal arts majors and can be tailored to meet individual students' career goals. Watch our video for more info

Sometimes the best classroom settings aren’t classrooms at all. Our field seminars are life-changing: you’ll travel to diverse locations around the U.S. and meet people who are working on environmental protection and sustainability causes. And through internships and research projects, you’ll explore the social, political, and scientific dimensions of sustainability and be well prepared for a career in this vital field.
