Our program brings together top faculty doing life-changing research in ecosystem science and sustainability. Students engage in field work, laboratory training, and technical instruction to examine and explore the sustainability of local, regional and global resources.
Colorado State University is the most comprehensive natural resources college in the nation and provides excellent exposure to internships and graduate schools in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. The university is within easy access of five ecosystem types: alpine, subalpine, montane, foothills and shortgrass steppe.
Students graduating from our department will have a strong scientific background, combined with a global perspective that will make them well prepared for a variety of careers.
Currently undergraduates can obtain a Bachelor of Science or minor in Watershed Science or a Bachelor of Science in Ecosystem Science & Sustainability.
Our Watershed Science program has a fifty-year legacy of interdisciplinary study of the natural processes and human activities that affect freshwater resources. Watershed scientists study the physical, chemical, social, and biological factors that affect the quantity, quality, and flux of water.
