UToledo is at the forefront of water quality and environmental research. We are recognized as expert in the field.
The University of Toledo is the perfect place to study the environment. The Toledo region’s unique, natural laboratory features natural habitats and landforms — glacial terrains, Lake Erie's fisheries and wetlands, savannas and woodlands — and is close to an urban population. This combination allows our graduate students and faculty to conduct relevant research that focuses on current environmental problems. You’ll be able to advance research in numerous fields — soil science, plant science, wildlife ecology, fisheries, limnology, surficial geology, hydrogeology and geophysics. This broad range prepares you for wherever your passions and career take you.
