Areas of Study

  • The broad spectrum of environmental justice and sustainability is examined by numerous courses and areas of study at Seattle University. For example, students in the Albers School of Business’s MBA program may seek a specialization in sustainability. Students who are interested in shaping environmental policies can explore the options within the Environmental Studies Program. Those seeking to develop technical solutions for challenges such as drinking water treatment and pollution control might consider a major in environmental science or civil engineering with an environmental engineering specialization.
