About the Environment:
The Interdisciplinary Program in the Environment at Loyola University New Orleans offers students the opportunity to engage in a broad and integrated study of the environment from a variety of academic viewpoints. As an interdisciplinary program, the curriculum represents courses from various colleges and departments that focus on understanding the relationships between humans and the natural world from biophysical, sociological, economic, literary, philosophical and religious perspectives.
As one of several interdisciplinary programs on campus, the Program in the Environment consists of various faculty that reside in different departments and colleges. Offices and research laboratories of the faculty in the Environment Program are located in various departments and buildings on campus, including the recently updated Monroe Hall, a state of the art science and media building. In addition, many faculty undertake field research at various off-campus locations, such as Jean Lafitte National Park, Lake Pontchartrain, Mississippi River Delta Wildlife Refuge, and various locations along the Gulf Coast and elsewhere.
