Welcome from Dr. Daniela Shebitz, Executive Director SESS

Greetings from the School of Environmental and Sustainability Sciences (SESS)!

We offer several Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree programs and options of study. These include Earth Sciences, Environmental Biology, Environmental Science, and Sustainability Science.

Our programs of study are committed to preparing students for a career in the environmental and sustainability sciences by providing them a unique operational, research-based training that involves significant hands-on and field experiences.

We adopt a transdisciplinary approach to the study of the integrated human and environmental systems of air, sea, land, plants and animals. Students acquire comprehensive and cross-cutting knowledge in science and develop skillsets, familiarity with modern tools and technology, and build practical abilities that make them ideal hires for jobs in multiple career pathways.

We use global perspectives and international collaborations to fully prepare students for their careers. Our field stations in the NJ Highlands and overseas provide ideal living laboratories for our students to engage in active experiential learning. They have the opportunity to work with scientists and research teams from across the world, utilizing field and laboratory resources from all these different sites, and become competitive in the global workforce.

We invite you to explore our programs and to visit with us here on campus either through the Kean University Admissions Office (Open Houses, Student for a Day program, Tours, etc.,) or by arranging time to meet with us directly by contacting the SESS Office at (908) 737-3737.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you very soon!

Dr. Daniela Shebitz, Executive Director SESS
