Environmental Studies/ Humanities/Human Dimensions?

I am looking at many different programs all invlolving topics like Enviornmental Studies or Natural Resources/ Human Demensions and there seem to me a thousand different names for what I am looking for which makes life quite tricky. Im not sure if this is the right place to post this but does anyone know of some good programs out there that look at the more anthroplogical or humanitites side of the enviroment and people and less on the siciences and policy. I have found a few already such as Colorado, Antioch, and University of Wyoming among others but if anyone else here has come across some other schools in their seraches that have eluded me on the internet it would be great to know! To weed out some of the many different names for one area of study.

Thanks, SO much!

U Montana Environmental Studies grad program has some of this emphasis. Check out Professors Hassenein, Brown, Covitt, Saha, Spencer. And Missoula is one of the best small cities in the country, IMHO :) Feel free to PM me for more details about U of M Env Studies program...

There are loads of environmental studies programs, and also programs that don't have that name but have lots of faculty in that area. For example, the subfields of environmental anthropology and political ecology (in geography and anthropology mostly) present a social science-based approach to studying the environment. You might try looking in those areas too.

Two programs that may suit your interests: the Environmental Social Sciences specialization offered at Ohio State's School of Environment and Natural Resources and the Environmental Thought and Culture specialization offered at the University of Vermont's Rubenstein School.

As has been said, though, there is no shortage of environmental graduate programs.
