Environmental Science A.S. (ENVS)

Attention This is an overview of the program. The course sequencing is meant to serve as a guideline for your semester planning. Please note that the scheduling of courses, program sequencing and curriculum are subject to change.

The environmental science program will provide graduates with an integrative study of natural systems and the effects of selective pressures, both natural and manmade, that continue to shape these systems. Students that complete this program will be prepared to either enter a four-year program leading to a baccalaureate degree or enter the workforce as an entry-level environmental scientist.

Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be able to:

  • understand the basic science principles and use of the scientific method.
  • understand the science behind environmental problems and solutions.
  • integrate other subject areas into their understanding of how humans can damage, preserve, or remediate the environment.
  • articulate and foster awareness of how human decisions can affect the environment.
