About the Environmental Studies Program

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies degree combines traditional classroom learning with hands-on outdoor experience. UMFK’s campus is located in the center of the Acadian Forest Region, which allows for a particularly unique and highly relevant environment for learning.

As a student in this program you will -

  • develop an understanding of the general principles of ecological systems.
  • be Engaged by a rigorous curriculum that emphasizes coursework in either aquatic or terrestrial ecology and human-environment interactions. 
  • receive one-on-one advising from a faculty mentor with extensive experience in the field
  • design and conduct an in-depth laboratory or field research study in the final year of the program. You will then present your findings to the campus at the end of the semester. 
  • be fully prepared for an immediate transition into a career or to pursue additional graduate study. Career preparation is a primary goal of our program.
