Small classes, interactive teaching, field study opportunities, and a combined focus on rigor and creativity create a rich, effective learning environment. You’ll find our faculty working side-by-side with students in the field and in the classroom, digging soil pits, mapping forest composition, tracking wildlife, and creating self-sustaining miniature biospheres. Internships and capstone projects, as well as many centers & institutes, provide research and service-learning opportunities. Join our diverse community of educators, managers, scientists, communicators, policymakers, writers, and activists who are working to preserve biodiversity, guide communities in planning for climate change, and incorporate sustainability in their organizations.
