Graduates are also capable of working in interdisciplinary teams within sustainable development or conservation projects, where values and skills related to environmental caring, professional ethics, and communication are required.


“I enjoy studying Environmental Management because I have the best professors, at a super affordable cost compared to other universities. For the Environmental Management program, I don't think there is a better place in Ecuador than Galapagos. With exchange programs, there is the possibility of meeting students and professors from all over the world. Listening to their opinions and ideas will give you a broader view of real-world problems and how to solve them."

“My name is Wilson Andrade, I am 21 years old and I study Environmental Management at the USFQ Galapagos extension. During these 3 years at USFQ, I have learned that barriers are only in our minds. Most of the teachers are amazing and have so much knowledge and experience that you will certainly learn a lot during the classes. There are several things that I like about USFQ, one of them is Liberal Arts where everyone can be themselves, without prejudice or authority that forces them to do something that they do not want: you can simply be yourself and experiment in any branch of knowledge. This university offers countless opportunities to achieve our dreams, which is why I recommend it to anyone who has not yet decided which university to choose. Similarly, USFQ together with the Galapagos Science Center leads all kinds of scientific research in which all students can participate in such a great opportunity.”
