Combine your love of the outdoors with employable skills from Lakeland’s Applied Environmental Sciences major. You’ll start by learning a wide range of environmental concepts related to water, soil and plants. You start in the classroom, but you’ll be in outdoor labs within your first month.
Your training is fun, hands-on and useful. You'll apply and practice what you’ve learned using real-life situations. These are the same skills you’ll use throughout your career; skills that employers will notice. They include:
aquatic habitat assessments
wetlands & soil classification
water monitoring and sampling
