The field and practice of environmental education refers to both formal and non-formal efforts to teach about how natural environments function, how human behaviors shape and influence those natural functions, and how we can change our behaviors in order to sustain a healthy environment for the future of all living things.

An environmental education minor prepares students to effectively teach learners of all ages and abilities, in outdoor and indoor settings. Gradutates will help students explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment.
