Bachelor’s Degrees Now Offered in Environmental Sustainability, Legal Studies, And Sport Management

Undergraduate students now have three new degree options with the establishment of bachelor’s degrees in environmental sustainability, legal studies, and sport management.

The bachelor of science degree in environmental sustainability is designed to capitalize on the growing demand in academia, business, and government for employees trained in various areas of sustainability, including energy, mineral, water, and ecosystem. In addition to a broad range of science and math courses, the degree includes environmental policy courses in law, political science, and economics, as well as required field experiences.

A broad comparative perspective on law and legal thinking is the central focus of the bachelor of arts in legal studies. The interdisciplinary program builds upon the University’s existing pre-law program, and offers core courses in political science as well as electives in anthropology, English, environmental science, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and women’s and gender studies. It also offers an optional summer program in international comparative law taught at St. Edmond’s College of Cambridge University in England.

The bachelor of arts in sport management is offered through a collaboration between faculty in the Department of Kinesiology and the Cotsakos College of Business. The program includes required courses in accounting, management, and marketing, as well as kinesiology, the history and philosophy of sport, and the psychology of sport; electives such as sport ethics and law, sport economics, and sport event and facility management; and an internship.
