The world needs well-trained scientists who are able to measure and mitigate the impact people have on the environment.
Kean's Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science degree prepares you to join a new generation of scientists by providing hands-on research and field experiences across New Jersey and around the world. Students learn about hydroponic agriculture, soil chemistry, climate change, coastal resiliency, water and air pollution, Geographic Information Systems, biodiversity monitoring and waste management.
Together, you'll work with Kean faculty to measure and monitor the environment in both field and laboratory settings, developing strategies to solve the most pressing environmental issues of our time. All environmental science majors work with faculty on research projects and/or do an internship with one of our many local partnering companies, parks, sustainable farms/hydroponic nurseries, and nonprofit organizations.
A "living laboratory" in Jefferson Township spans 41 acres of pristine forest, providing immersive research and educational opportunities for students.
