Designed with the earth in mind, the Master of Arts in Environmental Education and Communication features a comprehensive curriculum that concerns itself with both the beauty and the despair of the world.

Integrate what you know with what you learn here, for practical action in your life and work. You'll develop a broader understanding of sustainability, learn general systems theory and cultivate your own ecological identity. In the larger context of learning, our students often get outside — of the classroom, and of their own mindsets.

You'll also learn creative and strategic communication skills, and practice design thinking. Worldviews, ecopsychology and Indigenous ways of being and knowing will shape a critical awareness of multiple perspectives, and foster a closer connection with the natural world.

Your learning will focus on how we live, act, relate, teach and communicate. Discover more about the interconnectedness of the biosphere through hands-on experience at field school within various Indigenous communities.

This is an invitation to build upon your skills and imagination as an environmental educator and communicator. Applied projects and research that makes a difference will let you immediately practice and live what you are learning.
