Master of Science in Environmental Education
Learn what you need to succeed.
Every student in the Environmental Education program is an active participant of the planning process and implementation of Fall in the Field. This 8-week environmental education program takes place every fall with day programs in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and overnight programs in Southern Oregon. Environmental Education students plan this program from the ground up, utilizing the wealth of experience of the professors and the institutional knowledge of previous cohorts.
Before graduating, every student will complete an exit interview reviewing their leadership, teaching skills and accomplishments as observed through the program and Fall in the Field. Additionally, each student will choose from one of three completion options: exam, project, and thesis, selected at the beginning of the program. The exam is presented orally by a panel of professors from the Environmental Education and Biology programs, and one professor from another program such as physics or business. If a student chooses to do a project or thesis, instead of receiving an examination from the panel of professors, they will have to defend their final product.
