Eureka Environmental Science and Nature Program Overview

If you're unsure about your academic interests, consider enrolling in our Finding Academic Interest 101 course to explore a variety of subjects and find your passion

Like never before, the systemic nature of our world has been revealed to us by the coronavirus pandemic: human, animal, and ecological health are closely linked. Agroecology provides an inspiring example of a powerful systemic approach and in this time of the coronavirus pandemic, agroecology can prove helpful to further explore the links between agriculture, health, and the environment and realize that the way we practice agriculture can provide opportunities for improving environmental and human health, but if done wrongly, agriculture can cause major ecological and health risks.

The Environmental Science Program offers students a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between humans and the environment, focusing on sustainable practices and innovative ideas to address global environmental challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. 

Through the program, students develop critical thinking, research, and problem-solving skills, enabling them to make informed decisions toward creating a more sustainable future. Additionally, the program emphasizes the principles of agroecology and sustainable agriculture as promising approaches for transitioning to local food systems that can provide social, economic, and environmental benefits while ensuring equitable and sustainable food production for urban populations.
