Make a clean impact
When a natural disaster hits—as is all too common today—you can expect to hear of survivors in desperate need of potable water and other necessities due to the destruction of the local infrastructure. A degree in environmental health and water quality technology can set you on the path to becoming the person who helps in these situations, and, beyond that, will prepare you to more routinely provide services that insure public health and safety.
CUW has teamed up with Milwaukee Area Technical College to provide this bachelor degree program. What does this mean for you? First and foremost, you’ll receive state-of-the-art training in Environmental Health and Water Quality from experts at MATC coupled with the top-notch liberal arts program and large selection of minors offered at CUW.
Moreover, you can choose whichever route best fits your goals and needs while you obtain your degree—whether you enroll at CUW for a traditional four-year experience and commute the 3+ miles to MATC, or you divide your education into two distinct periods by completing MATC’s two-year, associate-level program prior to enrolling at CUW. Either choice will equip you with the skills you’ll need to make an impact; it’s up to you to decide which one best suits you.
