Mission and Goals

The environmental program at Carroll College is an integrated and collaborative effort designed to foster connection with the environment and with people who live in, work in and manage the natural resources, ecosystems, and wild areas we depend on. The environmental program currently offers three majors that allow students to pursue different fundamental approaches and career paths aimed toward the stewardship of our natural environment. Student research and practical experience is integrated into the program through field-based courses, individual research projects, and many internship opportunities. Our goal is to prepare students to become sound environmental citizens, who understand and can practice the interdisciplinary connections and collaborations that will lead us to a more sustainable future.
