St. Francis College Class of 2019 collected their diplomas during a Commencement ceremony on May 23rd, at Ford Amphitheater on the historic Coney Island Boardwalk.
The Future of the Planet is in Your Hands
At the crossroads between science and liberal arts, minoring in Environmental Studies will help you understand the world we live in from a wide perspective.
Will you help make the world a better place?
Courses in this minor give you an understanding of the science behind the challenges we face, teach you how to solve these problems from a practical, business-oriented point of view, and offer a moral and philosophical view to better understand the impact of the decisions we make.
The Environmental Studies Minor is a multidisciplinary minor designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the relationship between the environment and society from different perspectives. Its primary objective is to give students an appreciation and understanding of current environmental issues, policies and challenges. At 15 credits, it fits into the free electives for most majors, from the business to the liberal arts to the sciences.
As she prepared her Spring 2019 Commencement keynote speech, Michelle Miller, Emmy-award-winning co-host of CBS This Morning: Saturday, shared her thoughts on St. Francis College students, her college years at Howard University, and her advice to students looking to forge careers in journalism.
Six exemplary St. Francis College students each received $6,000 scholarships at a dinner and awards ceremony on April 24th that commemorated the completion of this year's Project Access program.
