The BS program in environmental and resource management provides critical scientific and management skills for graduates who will work in industry or government to ensure the health of natural ecosystems and mitigate the environmental impact of our industrial world. The curriculum combines a strong foundation in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, with a solid grounding in environmental law and policy. Students learn to apply environmental technologies to drinking water and wastewater treatment, management of hazardous and solid wastes, and control of industrial and mobile sources of air pollution. They study OSHA regulations on health and safety and strategies to protect workers in hazardous environments. International environmental issues and legal frameworks are included along with U. S. environmental laws.
