Math and Science


The Natural Resources Management program within the Math & Sciences Department is for students who love the outdoors and want a job taking care of it. If you love fishing, hiking, and camping, then this is the program for you. We provide you with the education you need to understand environments, human impacts, and management approaches to protect and preserve wildlife, water, and land resources. We partner with federal agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service and local organizations such as Taos Land Trust to provide students with hands-on experience and skills. We support students through transfer to regional colleges/universities to complete Bachelor’s degrees. We have an excellent track record of job placement after degree completion.
