Watershed Science Specialization

Type of Degree: Concentration

This specialization provides students who have a strong interest in water issues additional preparation for employment in field-related activities or graduate studies. Skills in watershed science are valuable to common first-destination employers such as the Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, BLM, Conservancy Districts, Army Corps of Engineers, and many environmental consulting firms. The specialization integrates with long-term research performed by the National Center for Water Quality Research, and students have the advantage of working with laboratory staff. This specialization is not a stand alone major, but is completed in addition to a student's Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.
