What is Environmental Education? | Environmental Education (EE)

Environmental education is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, engage in problem solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, individuals develop a deeper understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make informed and responsible decisions.

The components of environmental education are:PEYA winner and water monitor examining a snake

  • Awareness and sensitivity to the environment and environmental challenges
  • Knowledge and understanding of the environment and environmental challenges
  • Attitudes of concern for the environment and motivation to improve or maintain environmental quality
  • Skills to identify and help resolve environmental challenges
  • Participation in activities that lead to the resolution of environmental challenges

Environmental education does not advocate a particular viewpoint or course of action. Rather, environmental education teaches individuals how to weigh various sides of an issue through critical thinking and it enhances their own problem-solving and decision-making skills.

The National Environmental Education Act of 1990 requires EPA to provide national

Department of Environmental Sciences at Rutgers SEBS

The Environmental Science Graduate Program is proud to announce the creation of a 4+1 BS/MS program in Environmental Science!

Rutgers boasts one of the top Environmental Science undergraduate programs in the United States. Now our undergraduates will have the option of continuing their education by pursuing a one-year MS degree. Advantages of this new program include:

  • Earn your BS and MS degrees in Environmental Science in a total of five years.
  • Current Environmental Science majors can begin the program during their junior year.
  • Apply to and potentially be accepted to the MS graduate program without taking the GRE as long as you maintain a 3.0 GPA.
  • Continue research projects begun as an undergraduate and develop them in MS projects.
  • Want even more education? MS students can apply to enter the PhD program contingent on funding.

Biological and Environmental Research | Department of Energy

The Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program supports scientific research and facilities to achieve a predictive understanding of complex biological, earth, and environmental systems with the aim of advancing the nation’s energy and infrastructure security. The program seeks to discover the underlying biology of plants and microbes as they respond to and modify their environments. This knowledge enables the reengineering of microbes and plants for energy and other applications. BER research also advances understanding of the dynamic processes needed to model the Earth system, including atmospheric, land masses, ocean, sea ice, and subsurface processes.

Over the last three decades, BER has transformed biological and Earth system science. We helped map the human genome and lay the foundation for modern biotechnology. We pioneered the initial research on atmospheric and ocean circulation that eventually led to climate and Earth system models. In the last decade, BER research has made considerable advances in
