Antioch University New England Earns Environmental Education Accreditation

Antioch University New England’s Master of Science in Environmental Studies, Environmental Education program is now one of only nine NAAEE-Accredited environmental education programs in the United States and the only accredited program in the Northeast.

The designation comes following a recent accreditation by the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE).

NAAEE Accreditation formally recognizes high-quality college and university programs that consistently prepare well-qualified environmental educators who possess the understanding, skills, and attitudes associated with environmental literacy, as well as the ability to apply them in their educational practices. Antioch’s program does just that with a diverse EE faculty who support students with innovative coursework, a culture of collaboration, and small class sizes.

The accreditation review process encourages and recognizes excellence in the preparation and professional development of environmental educators, and facilitates the in-depth, continual assessment and improvement of environmental education preparation and professional development programs. The review was conducted by a nationally recognized panel of environmental education experts.
