Higher Education Database

Welcome to our Higher Education Database!

On this page you can find information about higher education programs and faculty that specialize in environmental education (EE).

This database takes a broad definition of what constitutes environmental education. You will find a variety of EE programs targeted to specific audiences, like residents of urban areas and Pre-K students. The database includes general environmental education degrees as well as programs in which students build the relevant knowledge and skills needed to pursue a career in EE, such as:

  • adventure education - using adventure-based educational experiences to foster learning
  • nature-based/outdoor education - education that takes place in nature-rich settings
  • place-based education - emphasizing connection to community and environment
  • sustainability education - focusing on principles of sustainability and community development

For more information about the field of environmental education, visit the About EE page.

You can join the conversation about higher education in EE in the Higher Education eePRO Group.
