One of the nation’s most respected environmental education programs has designed a graduate degree program to bring out the best in you and impact the world in which we live.

They promote field based research and community collaborations including partnerships with the Audubon Center of the North Woods, Science Museum of Minnesota, Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, the American Museum of Natural History and other prominent organizations. They challenge through inquiry, reflection and a strong focus on research and transform through a constructivist approach that draws on each student’s strengths and experiences as vital contexts for learning.

The MAEd: NSEE program focuses on environmental teaching and learning with an emphasis on systems and problem solving. It is designed for both classroom teachers and non-formal educators.
