Academic Programs

Merrimack College offers two critical core programs in environmental studies and sustainability and environmental science that provide academic and research dimensions to the Center for Sustainability and the Environment.


Faculty from a wide range of academic programs across the college also contribute to teaching environmentally and sustainability based courses in our environmental curriculum. Our affiliated faculty come from all five schools and have a wide range of interests.
