    Program Description

    Transfer, Degree (AA)

    An Option of Liberal Arts

    The Environmental Studies Program is an interdisciplinary transfer program that helps students understand the interrelatedness and underlying causes of environmental problems. It addresses environmental issues from multiple perspectives while defining personal and collective actions that will lead to solutions for a healthy planet and sustainable living. Since environmental problems are complex, 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, economy, and society. Students may select courses from either track or may take courses that combine both. Experiential and Place-Based Learning options will be provided through opportunities to participate in service-learning, field courses, and travel seminars. Students will be prepared to continue their studies as they pursue advanced degrees at four-year colleges. Career prospects for graduates include environmental science, natural resources, conservationism, environmental advocacy, and education.
