Why Study at Siena?

Why Study at Siena?

The Environmental Studies and Sciences program at Siena prepares students to make an impact on the world.

 “As an environmental science major at Siena, I was able to take my passion for ice fishing and   build my own independent study research project on how environmental change is affecting participation in the sport. My project involves interviewing ice fishermen and assessing their perceptions of changing ice conditions.”
