The BASEC degree opportunity is designed to meet the growing employment needs for graduates with advanced skills in environmental sciences and natural resource management. Graduates with a BASEC will acquire the necessary skills for advanced field and laboratory work and be able to move into management and supervisory positions within natural resource management divisions in the public and private sector.

The BASEC program schedule is designed to meet the needs of working adults, with one-third of the curriculum offered online. Face-to-face classes meet at the Mount Vernon Campus.
