The Environmental (ENV) Studies Program at PEI is responsive to the growing demand for environmentally focused undergraduate and graduate level courses at Princeton. The Program offers a range of courses focused on emerging themes in environmental research.
Examples of topical areas include environmental, ecological and climate justice and ethics, sustainable development, landscape architecture, environmental history, energy, climate, infectious disease and global health, environmental communications, and entrepreneurship.
PEI responds to students' interest in emerging topics in environmental studies. In the past, PEI has facilitated the development of several student-initiated courses including: "Towards an Ethical CO2 Emissions Trajectory for Princeton," "Environmental Entrepreneurship," "Environmental Communications," and "Farm to Fork: The State of America’s Food System Today."
Course Listings and Grand Challenges Courses
Each semester, PEI publishes course listings pertinent to the environmental studies program. Separate course listings for each of the three Grand Challenge initiatives: energy and climate; economic development and natural resource preservation in sub-Saharan Africa; and infectious disease and global health are also published.
