The environmental studies major will provide four distinct pathways: environment and society with a focus on the socioeconomic and cultural factors that influence how people treat the environment and frame solutions to environmental challenges; environmental humanities, which will look at how the human relationship with nature is expressed through literature and creative arts; environmental conservation; and sustainable food systems.

                        

The College of Wooster will add three new majors to its academic offerings this fall in statistical and data sciences, education, and environmental studies.

In a world awash in data, from global temperature readings to the browsing habits of a billion Amazon customers, it’s up to data scientists to make sense of and extract value from it all and then communicate their findings to decision-makers and the public.

Trained data scientists find employment in a variety of fields, from business and finance to health care and biotechnology. Students majoring in statistical and data sciences at Wooster will be required to take a second major or minor in order to provide them with immediate, practical opportunities to apply what they are learning.

The new education major will have four subfields, leading to licensure in either elementary education or adolescent to young adult education in integrated language arts, integrated mathematics or integrated social studies. It also will require students to complete a second major in a discipline related to their intended area of licensure. The new major replaces the college’s existing minor with licensure program.

The environmental studies major will provide four distinct pathways: environment and society with a focus on the socioeconomic and cultural factors that influence how people treat the environment and frame solutions to environmental challenges; environmental humanities, which will look at how the human relationship with nature is expressed through literature and creative arts; environmental conservation; and sustainable food systems.
