  • Course description
    The Environmental Science Program is an interdisciplinary
    and multidisciplinary course of study that presents an overview
    of ecological issues from a scientific perspective. With a
    broad foundation across the natural sciences, the coursework
    examines the interrelated nature of environmental and social
    systems. This program is designed to equip students with the
    skills and tools to successfully use the scientific method while
    studying and solving environmental problems.
    The Environmental Science Associate in Arts degree correlates
    with some of the lower-division courses required to
    transfer into Environmental Science or Environmental Studies
    Programs at several four-year institutions as well as a broad
    education for transfer in related disciplines. The Environmental
    Scienc
    e Certificate of Achievement demonstrates completion
    of all required coursework in the Environmental Science area
    of emphasis.
