The study of human ecology is all about our relationships with the planet’s natural, social, and built environment. Sustainability is never far from the surface, wherever you make your academic home at the college. Many courses address sustainability from ecological, economic, cultural, or artistic perspectives. As students chart their own programs of study, they might gravitate toward areas like food systems and farming, sustainable business, renewable energy, environmental law, conservation biology, and land use planning, among many others.
At COA, our courses reflect our values and concerns for the world.
