About the Program
Natural Resources and Environmental Science (NRES) is an interdisciplinary program that combines broad environmental knowledge and technical competency, with understanding of the economic, policy and human factors of environmental management to develop graduates who are well-equipped to deal with the environmental challenges of the 21st century. Students can choose from one of six concentration areas: energy and climate solutions, environmental policy and analysis, watershed management, environmental quality and restoration, sustainability science or emerging environmental challenges. NRES graduates work in an exciting variety of environmentally related careers in the public and private sector, including state and federal agencies, consulting firms and non-profits.
Students in the Watershed Management Concentration choose 21 credit hours of course work in community involvement, hydrology, and soil conservation in order to engage and educate stakeholders to implement land use and water management practices to protect and improve water quality and natural resources.
