Biographical/Historical Note

The Program incorporates a curriculum that emphasizes the understanding of the natural world in the contexts of history, science, politics, law, economy, religion, and the arts. The location of the college provides an excellent location for environmental studies in coordination with the college facilities including the Coastal Studies Center, the Bowdoin Pines, and the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island. The coordinate major is a feature unique to the environmental studies because it allows students to incorporate a second disciplinary major of their choice. The minor consists of five courses, but one must be taken outside the department.
