The Institute for Environmental Studies (IES) is a unique intercollege unit
of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was created in 1970 to promote,
develop, and administer interdisciplinary environmental instruction, research,
and public service programs.
Instruction is the lifeblood of the Institute for Environmental Studies.
Year-round, the institute offers more than 70 different courses, both independently
and in conjunction with UW-Madison's schools and colleges. Together, these
courses attract thousands of students each year.
The range of subjects is remarkable: from environmental health to environmental
ethics, from natural resources to natural hazards, and from climates of
the past to energy sources of the future. Frequently, the institute also
offers courses on special topics of current interest.
Although IES does not offer undergraduate degree programs, it does
offer an interdisciplinary certificate program open to all UW-Madison
undergraduates. IES also sponsors an undergraduate student exchange program
with the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. Complete information about
these programs is available from the IES Academic Programs Office, 70 Science
