Departments, schools, and support units

With multiple one-of-a-kind programs as well as traditional academic departments and schools, the Faculty of Environment truly offers environmental education from all angles.

As we move forward, we will embrace the complexity of the issues we study in order to educate graduates who will have the critical thinking, creative problem-solving, and collaborative skills to be effective contributors to building a sustainable future for humanity.
