This empirical study is to verify the moderating effects of environmental education on university. As an environmental education method, the environmental education method using 7 environmental movies by the multimedia with excellent learning effect in order to increase the interest and educational commitment of the learners was utilized. A total of 209 subjects were divided into experimental group and control group, and the experiment was designed based on Pretest-Posttest Control Group Design to grasp the effect of environmental education after conducting environmental education to the experiment group. The results of the analysis showed that environmental education had no effect on altruism but it had a positive effect on improving the awareness of consequence, the ascription of responsibility, the personal norms, and the pro-environmental behavior. This study proved that the sustainable environmental education could form pro-environmental behavior, even though the environmental sense of values had not been formed in adolescence, and furthermore, the earlier researches had been mainly focused on the effect of the environmental education for the adolescent.
Key Words: pro-environmental behavior, Altruistic Value, Awareness of Consequence, Ascription of Responsibility, environmental education
