The Environmental Science and Natural Resources Bachelor of Science degree program focuses on Environmental and Natural Resources management with an emphasis on environmental regulations compliance. The program is designed to meet the needs of tribal, state, and federal environmental and natural resources management and enforcement entities.

The program provides a broad background in natural resources management, covering natural science courses, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, environmental law, and regulations enforcement. The program focuses on addressing environmental and natural resources management in Native American communities and homelands.

Graduates of this program should be able to seek gainful employment in entities and organizations that deal with natural resources management, environmental protection, energy production, environmental protection and enforcement, and mineral extraction and processing.

A Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science requires 123 credit hours and the Environmental Science degree is designed for a four-year program of study. Students in the baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours in the upper division courses, i.e., 300 and 400 level courses before they can graduate.

  • General Science Requirements - 32 Credits
  • General Education Requirements - 35 Credits
  • Core Environmental Science Courses - 56 Credits

A student needs to complete general courses and general education electives within the first two years of study with a grade point average of 2.0 or better before taking the upper level core courses (300 and 400-level courses).
