Environmental problems are multifaceted and contain biological, cultural, social and physical elements. UMM Environmental Studies majors learn to untangle the complexity of environmental problems and use a wide array of tools to address them. Our faculty specialize in taking their students outdoors and into local communities to enhance the UMM learning experience. On any given day at UMM, you might collect herring from a nearby river, learn about the history of hunting in Maine, test water quality in a river, or map Passamaquoddy petroglyphs along the seashore.
