"The Environmental Science program at UW-Stout has molded me into a well-rounded individual with a broad range of knowledge and skills. The strong professors and involved students from diverse backgrounds and research interests have inspired me to continue my education in graduate school."
Callie Bernier, pursuing graduate school in landscape architecture
“The UW-Stout Environmental Science program has given me the skill set needed to stand out in a competitive job market. I was given opportunities both in and out of the classroom to gain valuable experience with real-world applications.”
“The Environmental Science program at UW-Stout has given me hands on experience working with and identifying plants, bugs, and exciting aspects of the environment. Personable teachers make learning easy and fun, and I feel like I learn something new each day!”
"The environmental science program at UW Stout helped me create my love for the outdoors into a potential career path that strays away from the mundane cubicle experience most graduates look forward to."
"The Environmental Science program helped me become successful by equipping me with the skills and knowledge needed to be and effective force in the fields of science, natural resource management, conservation, and land management through extensive coursework and in-field experience."
"The program taught me many things about myself and the hands on nature of the courses helped me obtain an internship."
“The Land Resources concentration at Stout is amazing because the professors go the extra mile to help students succeed in every way. The professors help students find internships and work experiences to help us gain useful working knowledge and hands-on experiences. They also provide a good balance between lectures and hands-on learning like labs and field trips.”
“The low student to teacher ratio within the UW-Stout Environmental Science program allows for teachers to take a hands-on approach to your education. This also allows for a better opportunity to perform undergraduate research than say similar programs in bigger universities. Beyond the classroom there are a good number of environmental-focused clubs, which offer hands-on experience in the skills learned in the classroom. I personally was able to take what I had learned from this program and land a job before I had graduated. This program also gave me the confidence to help friends and family with their own ecological restoration projects, as well as consult for people that I have met since graduation. “
"It kept me interested in the material, the enthusiasm that most of the professors had kept me from leaving. also allow students to have some sort of leeway we all have lives outside of the classroom and sometimes things do happen that stop us from finishing an assignment just be understanding."
"The program has given me an opportunity to succeed in a field I love. The professors and everyone else involved in this organization has done a considerable amount to help me become the knowledgeable, responsible, and motivated individual I am today. The small classroom sizes permitted me to become connected with many professors and gain connections I could never find elsewhere, which I am so thankful. I highly recommend this university to many future students."
"Being in this program helped me better understand what I need to do to be successful by exposing me to hands on projects, teaching me how to write, read, and interpret scientific papers and also helped me address the public and improved my communication skills."
