We are currently recruiting four Global Professors of Environmental Science, with expertise in one or more of the following fields of study: environmental microbiology, environmental chemistry and pollutant behavior, environmental physics, ecotoxicology, critical zone science, environmental health and justice, environmental assessment of contaminated sites, and reclamation of impacted lands. All of these new hires will be located at the Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University (NWAFU) Microcampus B.S. program in Environmental Science in Yangling, China.

The University of Arizona’s (UA) Global Office and the Department of Environmental Science (ENVS) entered into an agreement with NWAFU to develop and offer a microcampus B.S. degree program in Environmental Science at NWAFU that was initiated in September 2020.


This UA Global microcampus program will be delivered by six UA faculty “on the ground” at NWAFU in Yangling. The program includes 60 units of coursework taught by UA Faculty (in English), providing the core Environmental Science curriculum. The remaining ca. 105 units (prerequisites, general education classes, and elective courses) will be offered by NWAFU faculty. The program will lead to a joint UA-NWAFU degree, including a B.S. in Environmental Science from UA.


As one of the top universities in China, NWAFU is well equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms for teaching and research. It is located in Yangling, a beautiful town of 300,000 people, located 50 miles west of (and connected by high-speed train to) the provincial capital city Xi’an, the oldest prefecture capital in China, and home to 12 million people.
