Academic Programs

At Huxley College of the Environment, our interdisciplinary curriculum is anchored by two academic departments, Environmental Sciences and Environmental Studies. Our faculty and students enjoy additional research and learning opportunities through five on-campus research institutes dedicated to furthering the study of energy, resilience, spatial, environmental toxicology, and watershed issues.

Most Huxley College students complete a 10-15 credit internship, and many of our students receive scholarships based on academic performance and community involvement. Once they complete their degrees, our students go on to pursue a multitude of careers:

  • Research scientists & lab technicians

  • Community activists & volunteers

  • Urban Planners

  • Environmental Advocates

  • Attorneys & elected officials

  • Writers, musicians, & artists

  • Business leaders

Huxley College alumni produce films, author legislation, develop urban spaces,  help make public policy, and, yes, serve in the PeaceCorps.

At Huxley College of the Environment, our unique interdisciplinary approach grounds our students in both the social and natural sciences, and provides our graduates entry into a work force populated with fellow Huxley alumni who recognize the distinctiveness--and the value--of a Western education.
