Our mission in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management (NREM) is to prepare students for careers in environmental science and natural resource management by giving them an understanding of the physical, biological, and social aspects of natural and managed ecosystems.

Students have access to modern laboratories and equipment including teaching and research laboratories, lecture and discussion class-rooms, a computer lab, a darkroom, a student reading room, and a seminar-conference room.

Students may conduct research and support resource conservation practices on property managed by the Field Station and Environmental Education Center (FSEEC) with Muncie and the surrounding area offering opportunities to study environmental issues such as air, water and soil quality, land-use planning, energy and recreational management.

As you consider Ball State University and NREM, we encourage you and your family to schedule a visit.
