Students confront significant and complex environmental, economic, and social justice issues.

St. Edward's University provides sustainability-related research opportunities both on campus and abroad, many of which are partnerships between students and faculty. Learn about research opportunities by visiting the Fellowships Office or the Office of Sponsored Programs, or by talking to your academic advisor or faculty instructor.

The university offers several sustainability-related degree programs for both undergraduate or graduate students. Undergraduates can major in Environmental Science & Policy or Environmental Chemistry, while graduate students have the Professional Science Master’s in Environmental Management and Sustainability (MSEM) program.

Faculty not only play an essential role in the classroom, but they also inspire students with their own sustainability research and endeavors. They teach a wide range of courses, from Environmental Controversies in Austin, to Ligerian Ecology, to Biodiversity Conservation.
