Protect, conserve, renew
Hurricanes, oil spills and coastal erosion present unavoidable challenges to the southeast Louisiana coastal area that foreshadow environmental quandaries elsewhere. Unlike most other institutions, Loyola University offers its students a front row seat for community debates over the cost, effectiveness and long-range consequences of engineering regional ecosystems. Wetland, lake, river and gulf estuaries surrounding the city provide unique opportunities for the exploration and study of natural resources. Urban New Orleans also surrounds the campus, offering students a place to explore dynamic cultural traditions of music, art, cuisine, gardens and architecture celebrating the changing landscape.
Loyola's unique program in the Environment offers three majors and a minor: Environmental Science, Environmental Studies (Humanities), Environmental Studies (Social Sciences), and a minor in Environmental Studies. Learn more about our programs of study »

Tom Sevick (Environmental Biology '12) is now working on a graduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Southern Mississippi where his research evaluates the value of major marsh habitats to fishes and crustaceans in coastal Mississippi. One of the ways he evaluates these habitats involves taking aerial picture of marsh, such as the one shown here.
