Environmental Studies

Since its inception in 1973, the Environmental Studies program at St. John’s University has prepared concerned and motivated students to address serious environmental issues on a professional level. The two interdisciplinary degree programs and two minor courses of study educate students with diverse backgrounds in the sciences and humanities in the analysis and resolution of environmental problems. Students develop their speaking, writing, and critical thinking skills and have opportunities to work with professors on research projects, independent studies, and career development.

Students in the program also contribute to and directly impact sustainability initiatives on campus and raise awareness of environmental issues among their peers.
