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 from the Department of Environmental Studies (B.A., B.A.E., M.A., M.Ed.) and the Department of Environmental Sciences (B.S., M.S.). Each department offers multiple majors, from urban planning and environmental policy to estuarine science and terrestrial ecology.
