Degree Programs, Certificates, and Pre-College Programs in Environmental Conservation

We are training the next generation of environmental stewards in the natural and built environment through degree programs and certificates that encompass wildlife conservation, forestry, building technology, social, economic, and policy dimensions of natural resources, urban forestry, fisheries, and more.

Environmental conservation undergraduate programs include three BS degree programs, three minors, and a two-year AS program in the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. We also offer graduate programs in Environmental Conservation or Sustainable Building Systems leading to MS or PhD degrees and a Master's in Sustainability Science. We offer four certificates: Arboriculture and Urban Forestry, GIS Technology, Offshore Wind, and Sustainable Building Construction. We also offer pre-college programs for high school students, too.
