The last several centuries of humanity’s demographic, social, political, economic, scientific, and technological development has created a relationship between humankind and the environment that has been marked by conflicts. Along with the rise in environmental problems has been an increase in environmental awareness and initiatives to confront these problems. Education plays a central role as the principal way to create awareness, teach, and train people to shift this situation from negative to positive.
The Master of Environmental Management’s mission is to be a nucleus of environmental knowledge and practice, constantly searching for ways to contribute to the formation of upstanding masters committed to Christian Humanism. This involves applied research, community outreach, and support of private and public organizations in managing their environmental activities.
Our objective is to train our students to improve the quality of the world’s natural and built environments by delivering the necessary competencies to perform highly in environmental research, innovation, and management. We seek to create professionals who make environmental management part of their normal duties, executing and leading initiatives that treat our surroundings with respect.
