Learn through experience - outdoors, in the community, in the classroom, around the world.

The Rubenstein School claims a storied history of preparing environmentally and socially responsible leaders, scientists, practitioners and advocates who understand the interdependence of people and healthy ecological systems. A science-based curriculum, focused on experiential learning, inspires students to apply knowledge to real world projects. Students graduate with the skills needed to make change and resolve complex environmental challenges.
