In order to affect change on local, regional, and global levels, faith-based communities like Montreat must be engaged in the process of sound stewardship, reasoned education, and problem-solving. This process must be driven both by an understanding of environmental systems and by respect and concern translated into action.

Our Master of Science in Environmental Education (MSEE) program will deepen your understanding of environmental issues from a variety of perspectives while recognizing God’s sovereignty. You’ll become a well-rounded researcher and environmental educator, learning effective strategies for teaching environmental education to children and adults. You’ll also learn:

  • the historical development of the environmental movement and the environmental education field.
  • the environmental systems operating on local, regional, and global scales and the human impact on those systems.
  • a theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of instructional strategies, teaching methods, and curricula used in environmental education.

Our MSEE program allows you to earn a graduate degree in environmental education without leaving your current job. Course schedules are designed for working professionals.
