The Environmental Science and Natural Resources program emphasizes a thorough overview of environmental laws, hands-on experience, regulatory compliance, safety, and Native American perspectives on environmental and natural resource protection and management. The program is designed to meet the needs of tribal, state, and federal environmental and natural resource management entities, particularly those entities working in Native American communities.

The program focuses upon preparing the student to address environmental redemption and restoration. It provides a general background to assist with natural resource management.
