Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates*

The environmental field is a broad based area of study. It is truly interdisciplinary in nature. The subjects of biology, chemistry and geology are interwoven to provide a full picture of our environment and man’s impact upon this system.

The Environmental Science degree provides students with a foundation in the basic sciences and highlights the field’s interdisciplinary nature. The goal of the Environmental Science Program is to prepare students to transfer into a biological environmental science program at a four-year institution.
