The central goal of the Master of Education in Environmental Education program is to develop leaders in environmental education. One option, the residency, emphasizes the non-profit sector of the field, while the other option, based on Western's campus, addresses a wider scope of needs and opportunities. All students share a core of academic courses and use the extensive resources of Huxley College of the Environment, Western Washington University, and the rich environmental education community of the region. Residency option students spend one year at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center under the supervision of both College faculty and North Cascades Institute staff. Campus-based students select courses from the WWU catalog and undertake a Field Project or Thesis under the direction of College faculty.
