Department of Environmental Studies, Huxley College of the Environment

121-128 credits (preparatory courses and major)


Students in Huxley’s environmental education major obtain basic knowledge of the interdependent natural processes and human choices and institutions that affect environmental quality and human well-being. With this grounding, they focus on education as a critical factor in humans’ abilities to create positive solutions. In particular the major offers a highly experiential approach to the distinct nature of, reasons for, and techniques of environmental education as a diverse and dynamic profession. Some graduate work in formal school classrooms, while others work in agency, non-profit, media or other community-based settings. The major offered two emphases: 1) Outdoor Education and Interpretation, and 2) Community Education and Mass Communication.
