11-month Master’s Degree in Environmental Education

Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College

About the organization

The Master of Arts in Environmental Education (MAEE) program at Goshen College is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 cohort. This 11-month professional degree program is perfect for both those beginning their EE careers or continuing a lifelong profession.


What makes our program different? The entire experience takes place at the Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center, Goshen College’s environmental education center and 1,189-acre nature preserve located south of Wolf Lake, IN. Most MAEE students live on the Merry Lea property resulting in a unique immersive residency experience during which they work closely with faculty and a small cohort of other passionate learners. In addition to coursework in environmental education pedagogy, natural history, land management, organizational leadership and nature center administration, our students spend a significant amount of time working alongside, and learning from, Merry Lea’s team of professional environmental educators during two extensive teaching practicum sessions.

All admitted students receive an $8,000 scholarship and additional scholarship funding is available for Indiana residents and students from historically underrepresented groups in the field of environmental education. Applications received before March 5, 2022 also receive a $500 early bird discount.


Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or college. TOEFL scores (International students only). No GRE scores are required. Although applicants may come from diverse backgrounds and educational fields, all applicants are encouraged to have at least one college-level course in the bio-physical sciences.


$8,000 scholarship and additional scholarship funding is available
