Science, Technology & Environmental Studies
The Science, Technology, and Environmental Studies (STES) program at Butler offers you interdisciplinary perspectives on the complex relationship between science and technology and our health, our families and communities, and the natural world.
In either program major—Environmental Studies or Science, Technology, and Society—you'll take sciences classes, doing hands-on investigation, observing nature, and applying the principles of research to determine how things work. You’ll also take humanities classes, discovering and discussing world-changing ideas, while challenging assumptions through creative and critical thinking assignments.
Environmental Studies (ENV) majors focus intently on the environment and our interaction with it. They also gain specific knowledge in biology, chemistry, communication, and the humanities. Each completes a community-based internship or practical experience related to the environment and sustainability.
Science, Technology, and Society
Science, Technology, and Society (STS) majors examine how science impacts our world and how the economic, political, and cultural motives of society influence science. They graduate with deep interdisciplinary knowledge, intellectual flexibility, and communication and problem-solving skills crucial to any career.
