Water is critical to life and trained professionals who can help create a more sustainable water future are increasingly in demand. The Water Quality Management (WQM) program trains people to solve the mounting global water crisis. WQM is for those who want to make a positive impact on their world while developing valuable job-ready skills. We are housed in a state of the art facility – The Environmental Training Center – which boasts numerous hands-on learning laboratories. Here you will find staff dedicated to career counseling, tutoring, and subject-specific advising. Small class sizes and adjunct faculty with real-world experience contributes to student success.

The Water Quality Management (WQM) Department periodically hosts info sessions as an interactive way to provide information to students about the entire WQM program with an emphasis on the  Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree. In order to enroll in the BAS program, attending an info session is required before you can register.  The AAS Degree and Certificates are also discussed during the session and there is time for subject specific advising afterwards.  If interested in attending an info session, please contact Summer Waters summer.waters@rrcc.edu. Drop-in advising for AAS students is available with Chelsea Campbell, Lead Faculty, during normal office hours on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-6 PM in ETC 5107. You can reach her by email at Chelsea.Campbell@rrcc.edu
