The Huxley College Difference

Since 1969, WWU’s Huxley College of the Environment has enjoyed a reputation as a premier institution for the education of future environmental experts and leaders. Our distinctive, interdisciplinary curriculum grants degrees in Environmental Studies (B.A., B.A.E., M.A., M.Ed.) and Environmental Sciences (B.S., M.S.). Each degree offers multiple concentrations, from geography and environmental policy to estuarine science and terrestrial ecology.

I chose Western for graduate school because I have the opportunity to design my own thesis research.
