Professional Land Management Concentration

Students of the Professional Land Management concentration develop a complex and nuanced understanding of the U.S. legal system relative to energy development, including administrative law, legislation and regulation, and the common law of property and contracts. This concentration is a particularly effective option for students who are interested in the legal profession and/or attending law school.

Energy and Environmental Systems Concentration

Environmental scientists collect data samples for air, soil, water and other materials to identify environmental impacts for studies and surveys. These samples help to resolve environmental threats, develop plans and provide guidance to ensure quality regulation and manage natural resources.

Energy production is dependent upon the sustained stewardship of air, land, and water resources. Environmental scientists, consultants, and reclamation planners use their knowledge of our natural resources to protect the environment during energy development.
