Environment, Politics, and Society Department Chair: Dr. Paul A. Barresi In the twenty-first century, it is becoming essential to go green. Public opinion, political pressure, emerging business opportunities, and ecological realities are driving the integration of environmental and sustainability concerns into nearly every sphere of life and nearly every major employment sector in the United States and abroad. Southern New Hampshire University’s innovative environmental major prepares students to take their places as professionals and as citizens in this rapidly changing world. Our graduates have the knowledge and skills, and are committed to cultivating the wisdom necessary, to build new and better, environmentally sustainable futures for themselves and their families, their communities and the world.

History Administrative Chair: Dr. Ernie Holm The history major at Southern New Hampshire University is designed to be both comprehensive and flexible when compared to undergraduate programs throughout the country. Students receive a broad foundation in United States history and Western Civilization, primarily through primary sources, and then may, in consultation with their advisor, design their own course of study incorporating coursework from throughout the university. Students may choose a general course based in United States, European, or world studies, or may organize their degree around a specific theme such as religion, African-American, political, social, intellectual, or economic topics to name a few. All history majors complete required courses in historical methods and a senior colloquium where they write a senior thesis. In addition, the student may pursue a secondary interest in more depth since the major allows for 21 credits in electives.
