ENST Major/Minor

The major and minor program in Environmental and Urban Studies motivates a deeper theoretical understanding of urbanism and nature, as well as practical strength in addressing urban and environmental challenges.


The Program on Global Environment offers courses that explore the systematic processes and formal and informal relationships of humans to built and natural environments in cities across the globe.

The Program on Global Environment (PGE) fosters undergraduate study of the complex intersections of urbanism, environment, and society. The program is home to the Environmental and Urban Studies BA major and minor program, and co-curricular opportunities through the Frizzell Learning and Speaker Series, Chicago Studies, student internships, international experiences, and more.


PGE hosts information sessions, study breaks, research presentations, faculty lunch and learns, and career events, as well as the student-organized Frizzell Learning and Speaker Series.


In collaboration with partners across the university, we host undergraduate student research experiences, a student-led speaker series, internship opportunities and career events
