Environmental Studies

"Environmental studies unlocks the keys to the world.”

Environmental challenges, solutions and justice do not have disciplinary boundaries. Neither should you. Gain a sophisticated understanding of the interconnections of environmental issues and how you can approach solutions at work, at home, and anywhere in the world.

From investigations of a local wetland in the 3000+ acres of natural land on our campuses, to studying international climate policy as its being made, environmental studies at CSB+SJU offers a wide range of opportunities to start you on a path to create a positive impact in the world.
