Roanoke College

Roanoke College is an independent, co-educational, 4-year liberal arts college. Founded in 1842, we are the second-oldest Lutheran-related college in America. We seek and welcome students of all races, creeds, nationalities and ethnic origins.

As an environmental studies major, you'll investigate pressing domestic and global environmental problems, observe the natural world and gain insight into the creation of a more sustainable future. You'll also spend time exploring and studying Virginia's forests, mountains, streams, rivers, lakes, farms, urban and rural human communities. You'll have the chance to study conservation ecology abroad in places like the Yucatan or India with our faculty.
