Program Overview

The Honors Tutorial College program in Environmental Studies provides students a unique opportunity to explore nature-society relations in a highly interdisciplinary environment, drawing on faculty perspectives from the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, public health, physical and natural sciences, engineering, and communications.

Admissions Information

Freshman/First-Year Admission

Applicants will be selected by the director of studies and an Environmental Studies program admissions committee in consultation with the dean of the Honors Tutorial College. In addition to a superior academic record (minimum 3.5 GPA, a minimum score of 30 on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT, and a class rank in the top 10%), committee members look for students who are highly motivated and exhibit the potential to conduct independent research. An essay and a personal interview with the director of studies are required for entry as a freshman. Two letters of recommendation are also required. Although this is a four-year program, consideration will be given to applications of first-semester Ohio University freshmen.

Change of Program Policy

First-year students at Ohio University may apply to transfer into the tutorial programs offered by the Voinovich School and the Honors Tutorial College. These students must meet the same entrance requirements as entering HTC freshmen. The deadline for application for admission is December 1st, and admission interviews are held in January. Students in other HTC programs who wish to change to HTC Environmental Studies should contact the director of studies.

External Transfer Admission

First-Year students at another institution may also apply to transfer into the tutorial programs offered by the Voinovich School and the Honors Tutorial College. These students must meet the same entrance requirement as entering HTC freshmen. The deadline for application for admission is December 1st, and admission interviews are held in January.
