Environmental Science

The Environmental Science Program is designed to prime students for productive engagement in water and mineral resources sampling, waste management, environmental quality control and current issues like climate change. It covers topics with a specific emphasis on Tribal, public and federal agency needs, but also seeks to supply its graduates with skills applicable to the private sector and non-profit employment. The curriculum is designed to prepare graduates for work in field and laboratory settings. It is also structured to allow continuing students to transfer relevant credits to higher degree programs.
