At this Environmental Science program from Saint Joseph's University, you will also learn about the history and study the literature of the movement, as well as the politics that affect it. Noted experts and researchers in their fields, the interdisciplinary faculty who will be your mentors in the classroom, the laboratory and in the field are intensely dedicated teachers.

Your coursework begins with the basic principles of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, and then moves on to a series of upper level courses in three broad areas – environmental policy, biological sciences or physical sciences. This allows you to design your own unique course of study.

Learning outcomes

A distinctive benefit of the program is the opportunity to engage in faculty-mentored research during the academic year and the summer, in areas such as plant biology, ecology, animal behavior, environmental chemistry, geochemistry and environmental history and policy. A semester-long internship is also required as part of the major. Majors and minors participate in the environmental student group, which organizes hikes, field trips, lectures, plants trees on campus, helps with campus recycling programs, and is active in coordinating campus Earth Day activities.
