Undergraduate Majors

The topic of sustainability can be incorporated into any discipline and any major. This list is a sampling of majors that have a strong emphasis on sustainability, the environment, and natural resources.


The Environmental Studies Program (EVST) seeks to provide students with the literacy, skills, and commitment needed to foster a healthy natural environment and to create a more sustainable, equitable, and peaceful world. To these ends, the EVST Program educates and challenges students to become knowledgeable, motivated and engaged in environmental affairs. We want our students to acquire the skills and awareness that will enable them to promote positive social change and to improve both the environment and communities of Montana, and thereby the lives of Montanans.

Natural resources education began at The University of Montana in 1913 with the founding of the School of Forestry. In the intervening 91 years, the School's educational programs expanded and evolved into the most interdisciplinary, action conservation training in the world. In 2003 the name of the School of Forestry changed to the College of Forestry and Conservation to demonstrate this evolution and to identify the faculty's commitment to the integration of multiple natural resources disciplines into an extraordinary undergraduate experience.
