Watershed Science Specialization

Protect our water

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, Conservancy Districts, Army Corps of Engineers, and many environmental consulting firms. 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.
