Environmental Studies Majors who specialize in Urban Sustainability or Politics, Policy and Justice are uniquely situated to complete a double major in EVST and Public Affairs. Students can complete this double major in a normal four year course of study. Please meet with your academic advisor to discuss your academic course plan and the requirements for completion of the Environmental Studies and Public Affairs Double Major (PDF)
"Environmental studies was something I knew I wanted to study for a long time, and the program here at SU was one of the most well-established programs I looked into. I then found out there was a possibility to double major with Public Affairs in addition to EVST and it really piqued my interest. Taking the classes and talking with the people in both programs really solidified in my mind that this was the path I wanted to take and how well the majors fit together."
