We are thrilled to announce that this 5-course minor was recently accredited by the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE)! We were the first institution in New Jersey to earn this distinction and one of only 11 programs across North America to earn this recognition.
There are three core courses required for the minor: Environmental Sustainability in Education: An Introduction, Environmental Science for Educators, and Sustainability and Society. With faculty advisement, students choose two content deepening courses as well: one in the sciences and one in the social sciences, arts or humanities. All students in the minor complete a .25-unit culminating independent study.
Many students have graduated from this program and have gone on to grow green thinkers in classrooms across the state.
Recent graduate Mariah Belber’s independent study project culminated in an article published in Green Teacher magazine.
