Student walks with net in the marsh on the Nantucket Field Station where School for Environment students can take classes.

Welcome to the School for the Environment. The School for the Environment is the University of Massachusetts Boston's premier transdisciplinary environmental school. The school integrates the natural and social sciences, liberal arts, governance, and business to generate and apply new knowledge about the quality of our environment and the sustainable use of its resources.

The research sites of our faculty and students range from local to global, from enabling coastal community resilience right here in Boston Harbor to the impacts of climate change on coral reef ecosystems off the coast of Djibouti. Please read our website or visit us in person to learn more about the work we do, and how you can get involved. Welcome!
