Bachelor of Science in Native Environmental Science

Degree Information

The Native Environmental Science Bachelor Degree is intended to meet the critical need for effective Native American leaders and environmental scientists who are rooted in their culture. This program will emphasize and explore the interrelatedness of Native ways of knowing, traditional ecological knowledge and "western" science. Prominent aspects of the program include hands-on learning and the involvement of students in community service, research and internships. The program will prepare graduates to work within tribal communities in support of environmental stewardship, conservation and revitalization. This program was designed with considerable input from Pacific Northwest Tribal elders, leaders, environmental managers, educators and students. Students may choose between the Environmental Science Option and the Interdisciplinary Concentration. Students must complete at least 60 credits at the 300-499 level.
