    If you want to work in nature, help the environment and keep our water safe, the Water Science Program will get you there.

    The Water Science Program at SCC is one of only a few programs of its kind in the United States. You'll get hands-on experience in the field learning how to collect samples, complete field surveys, analyze and report water quality conditions, and learn about aquatic life and their ecosystems to help improve fish habitat.

    You will receive specialized training and real work experience in preparation for a career in water in local, state and federal agencies, as well as private industry.  The Program has embedded certificates in GIS as well as water and wastewater operations that can be earned in one year.

    Students completing the Water Science degree can earn a BA or BS degree in Geosciences at Eastern Washington University in 2 years under a 2+2 direct transfer agreement.
