Cultivating the Environmental Humanities

The development of four courses and eight course modules, related student engagement activities, and a campus-wide forum, focused on environmental humanities.

While rapid growth in STEM at Rowan in terms of student enrollment, faculty research, and administrative focus has been able to occur side-by-side with the existing core of humanities, this has been at the expense of mechanisms for thorough crossover between these areas of the university. Aside from a few general education requirements, there is little institutional encouragement for students to become well rounded in both humanities and STEM fields, let alone to develop active connections and conversations between them. This project aims to correct this problem through a focus on courses, curricular structures, and developing cultures of research and interaction around the environmental humanities (EH).
