Environmental Studies, A.S.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Environmental Studies degree will provide students with the opportunity to study both the scientific and policy applications of environmental issues. Students in the program will complete a multi-disciplinary “core” set of courses within a structured, exploratory program of environmental studies that prepares them for transfer to a four-year institution. Depending on their intended career and/or transfer goals, students will be able to select courses from a list of restricted electives that include science, policy, and government courses. The environmental science courses will involve students in the study of the natural sciences and the human context of environmental problems. Students who desire to focus more heavily on environmental policy can focus on the economic, and political aspects of environmental issues.
