umces graduate studentAs one of the nation’s oldest environmental research institutions, the Center strives to train and inspire our nation’s next generation of environmental scientists. Since 1925, UMCES has connected experienced environmental scientists to aspiring students wanting to learn more about our natural world.

Over the years, UMCES has grown and expanded our teaching activities beyond graduate studies by developing new programs designed to reach students of all ages. While we primarily focus on graduate studies, we also offer courses for undergraduates, K-12 students and their teachers, and environmental professionals looking to better understand specific environmental problems.

With concerns growing about the long-term sustainability of our planet’s environment, UMCES plays a vital role in educating those seeking to harness the power of science to develop a deeper understanding of how it works.
