Environmental Education (M. Ed.)

Parks and Recreation Brochure

Graduate study in environmental education is a Master of Education program for individuals who possess teacher certification or for those who desire a program of study that is oriented more to non-formal educational settings. This program is online only.

Slippery Rock's Master of Education degree in Environmental Education is a 30 credit hour program. The program is designed both for the classroom teacher and the non-formal educator who want to address state and national guidelines for environmental education in their lessons and programs, and to assist  school districts in meeting these recommendations. Since environmental education is frequently integrated into the curriculum, rather than addressed as a separate subject, the program helps students develop those competencies while increasing their understanding of societal interactions with ecological systems.
