Environmental Studies Department

Laurie Carlson
Department Chair

The Environmental Studies Program is an interdisciplinary transfer program that helps students understand the underlying causes of environmental problems and fosters an active search for solutions. These environmental problems are complex. Therefore, the program provides a broad range of liberal arts experiences in two tracks -- Environmental Awareness and Environmental Science -- leading to lifelong awareness of sustainability issues that connect the environment, the economy, and society. Students may select courses from either track or may take courses that combine both. Students will be prepared to continue their studies as they pursue further degrees at four-year colleges. Career opportunities for graduates include environmental science, natural resources, and advocacy.
