The Environmental Science Program at the Stockton University provides a broad understanding of how physical, biological and human components of the environment interact to prepare students to become environmental professionals. 

Overview

We stress a multidisciplinary approach that enables students to follow their interests and select elective courses in our or in other programs at Stockton. Each senior student completes a research project or works as an intern with an environmental organization to gain more practical experience and to integrate his or her academic work with a real world experience. Our courses emphasize fieldwork and other practical experiences. We encourage close work with our full-time faculty and we provide the latest technology to train students to step into an environmentally related career and help them achieve the goal of becoming professionals and lifelong learners.
