The Environmental Education program at Southern Oregon University is proud to offer a Master of Science program accredited by the North American Association for Environmental Education. This program is designed to create leaders in the field of Environmental Education. Our program offers interdisciplinary training in the natural sciences, ecology, and education, all in the diverse and spectacular Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion of southwestern Oregon and northern California.
Our science-based program offers several unique elements including our culminating project. The graduate students collaborate to design and present both a day and residential program aimed at diverse audiences (grades 2-12) located at a Field Station (Deer Creek Center) and on the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.
The graduate academic experience can be further enriched by adding a certificate in non-profit management, thesis, project, or teaching license. Students may choose to incorporate a Master of Arts in Teaching and earn teacher licensure at the secondary level with a science endorsement (options for licensure at the elementary and middle level are also possible).
Four graduate assistantship positions are offered each year to Environmental Education graduate students through the Siskiyou Environmental Education Center and an additional assistantship is offered as an instructor for introductory biology labs. Going into effect during the first fall quarter and lasting throughout the first year of study, graduate assistants receive an 80% in-state tuition remission and a monthly stipend. The assistantship requires 12 hours of work per week. Positions include Siskiyou Environmental Education Center (SEEC) Office Manager, SEEC Office Assistant, Education Outreach Coordinator, and Fall in the Field coordinator.
Applications for graduate assistantships receive priority consideration and must be received by January 16, 2017. Applications for admission into the Environmental Education program are considered January 16, 2017 and April 17, 2017. For more information about application requirements visit inside.sou.edu/ee/apply.html.
Financial aid may be available to students. Some students may qualify for in-state tuition through the Western Regional Graduate Program.
