Environmental Studies
Explore the world— and your place in it.

Ready to unravel the world’s mysteries, from organisms to ecosystems? As the land-grant college of New Jersey, Rutgers is the natural choice. Students choosing environmental studies seek science-based solutions to problems confronting our planet and its people. They are studying climate change and human ecology; exploring the oceans, protecting endangered species and pioneering new or alternative energy systems while working in fields as diverse as government, business, media, industry, health care and non-profit organizations.

A Rutgers education in an environmental studies major is hands-on and interactive, with fieldwork, laboratory research, and community action. You’ll learn how to use science for the benefit of humans and environments in programs such as biotechnology • ecology and natural resources • environmental and business economics • environmental planning and design • marine science • meteorology • and more
