After Lewis & Clark
What would you like to do with your ENVS major after graduation?
There’s perhaps no better way to imagine what you can do with your ENVS major than to hear from our ENVS alums. Below you’ll find links to interviews of our recent grads (more coming soon!), then stories by alums recounting their work and life after graduation.
Recent Alum Interviews
We only handicap ourselves if we don’t try to understand the world from someone else’s point of view, and explore the scary idea that we ourselves might be wrong.
When I came to visit, it just felt right; I could see myself going to school here and being happy.
Be a go-getter! Most of the communities I’m a part of and the opportunities that I had were because I went after something even if I was feeling uncertain about whether I should try.
At L&C, I was given the attention I needed to get into the right classes and graduate on time.
What I have loved most about my studies is finding and nurturing the connections between seemingly disparate subjects.
I am proud of designing my own capstone outcome, a graphically-oriented report. It taught me a lot about communicating information visually, a skill that is incredibly useful in the current information age.
I have become more open to exploring new subjects, especially with my interdisciplinary education.
Simply put, I have become a more practical environmentalist, a critical thinker, and have a clearer vision of how our future must look.
Something we discuss in ENVS is how people are often not ready to question their views on environmental issues and even consider their environmental beliefs to be spiritual and thus beyond critique/questioning.
I really like how many departments in the school incorporate international perspectives in symposiums and other activities on campus.
Throughout the last four years, my classes, professors, and experiences in the ENVS program have helped me learn how to address multiple sides of environmental issues and understand multiple viewpoints.
