Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field based on the interactions of living and non-living components of nature and with an emphasis on the interaction and impact humans have on the environment. Environmental Scientists examine the role of humans as agents of change within the environment as a means to better understand causes and effects of issues that threaten the sustainability of the environment and human health.
This program will allow students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to seek a bachelor’s degree in environmental science or studies.
Upon Completion of this Program, Graduates will be able to:
- Use currently accepted biological, chemical, and physical concepts to investigate problems and issues in the environment.
- Identify and implement environmental sustainability or energy efficiency strategies within their workplace, home, or community taking into consideration factors such as project impact, cost effectiveness, and technical feasibility.
- Explain and apply the underlying concepts of current topics in environmental science and sustainability.
