Environmental Studies

Designed to be intentionally integrated and completed alongside any major, Quinnipiac’s BA in Environmental Studies (Co-Major) gives you the experience and expertise to address the effects of climate change, water pollution, waste disposal and other prominent environmental challenges in a range of professional fields.

  • Major & Minor Requirements
  • Research & Experiential Learning
    Experiential learning opportunities available in regional, national, and international settings enable you to integrate and apply what you’ve learned outside of the classroom. These include study abroad, faculty-led international courses, and field research in environmental biology, chemistry, or engineering. Others are made available through university partnerships and special programs, and include participation in an environmental policy fellowship in Washington, D.C., and work with local nonprofits or governmental agencies.
  • Explore Your Future

    If you are passionate about a specialized field such as environmental communications, business sustainability, environmental public health, biostatistics, environmental law or environmental engineering, the integration of your primary major with the environmental studies co-major will allow you to pursue that passion. Check out our “What Can I Do With This Major?” tool to explore some specific job titles and functions.

    Graduates often pursue opportunities directly in environmental roles. However, environmental/sustainability-related roles can often be found in federal, state and local environmental agencies, political action groups, NGOs, nonprofits, corporations, and research organizations.
