Outstanding History of Service
First Seventh-day Adventist Environmental Science Degree
As the first Seventh-day Adventist university to introduce a bachelor’s degree in environmental science in 1995, Walla Walla University carries its history of service into the world to care for the natural environment in a faithful and fruitful way. With an interdisciplinary program in Natural Resources Conservation and Management we join with fellow created beings in our continuing commitment to earth stewardship.
We seek to develop an appreciation of the physical world and human impact upon it. A tradition of practicing preventive measures in spiritual and physical care of humans provides a natural background for safeguarding all of creation. Graduates demonstrate understanding and techniques of caring for the components of our biosphere. They actively contribute to a more sustainable, livable world through planning and research.
Seventh-day Adventist Christians cherish God’s creation. We have accepted participation in stewardship of His entire domain. People; creatures of the air, sea and land; and the grass, herbs and trees that populate this Earth are part of this shared dominion.
“God placed man on Earth to cultivate and keep it.” Genesis 2:15
