One of the first of its kind in the nation, Environmental Management and Technology is conveniently located between two wildland watershed open spaces in the Oakland hills that serve as field classrooms, along with the student-built Self-Reliant House. Here students experience hands-on projects that lead to certificates and careers in such areas as Greening the Urban Environment and Urban Agroecology as they also help to restore and revitalize the community. Please remember, many careers do not require a specific major; rather, employers are often more interested in the experiences you have had and the skills, interests, abilities, and strengths you have developed through these experiences that enhance your academic program.
