This study aims to determine the combined effects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) which is integrated with the problem-based learning (PBL) approach to improve the ability of environmental literacy students in the biological education study program at Puangrimaggalatung University, Sengkang. This research uses the type of Quasi-Experimental research Design using the Noneqivalent Control Group Design research design. This research was conducted at the Biology Education Study Program at Puangrimaggalatung University. The instrument used in this study is the 2018 MSELS (Middle School Environmental Literacy Survey) which has been adopted at several points to adapt to environmental conditions in Indonesia as well as questions relating to environmental change material. The results of the study are known through the t-test on the posttest value that is t-count = 7.708> t table = 4.235, then H0 is rejected, H1 is accepted, so it shows that there is a difference between the experimental and control classes after being given treatment. This study concludes that problem-based learning models influence the improvement of students' environmental literacy skills in the Biology Education Study Program at Puangrimaggalatung University
