Environmental Studies

The mission of the Department of Environmental Studies is to provide students with rigorous interdisciplinary tools to study, manage and resolve environmental challenges. Among the first such programs in the country, the Department of Environmental Studies at SJSU has been granting degrees and training environmental professionals since 1970. Today, our students experience hands-on learning through field courses, the Center for Development of Recycling, the Environmental Resource Center and off-campus internships. Alumni fill positions in fields including environmental impact assessment, habitat restoration, renewable energy, water policy, environmental education, sustainable agriculture, park management, environmental policy, integrated waste management, and recycling. The program in Global Studies recently joined the Department, expanding offerings and opportunities to students. The BA in Global Studies is an interdisciplinary program that looks at the world holistically, examining the connections between international human migrations, the movement of goods, technology transfers, and environmental change. The Department offers a BS degree, BA degree, and a BA preparation for teaching in Environmental Studies in addition to the BA in Global Studies. We also offer a range of minors to students around campus. For students wishing to go further, the Department offers one of the few research-based Master of Science degrees in Environmental Studies in the country.
