Career Paths

The University of New Hampshire and the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture recently announced changes that will transform the Thompson School of Applied Science in response to the realities of higher education within our state and region.

The Civil Technology program is being discontinued and is not accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Currently enrolled students will have access to courses and resources until they graduate in May 2019.

You can learn more about the university’s plan and find answers to frequently asked questions at The Future of the Thompson School.
