Environmental Science and Natural Resources Certificate

certificatesEnvironmentalNaturalScienceImageA

The Environmental Science and Natural Resources certificate 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 certificate program is designed to provide students with the education and training to obtain entry-level positions as environmental or natural resources technicians. Additional semesters of training and education lead to an A.A.S. degree; this portion of the training deals more with skills needed to assist in managing projects and interpreting data, with emphasis on Native American training needs.
