The Environmental Science program is designed to prepare students for a career within the field of environmental science. Students graduating from our two-year program will be immediately qualified for some related employment opportunities, including entry-level positions with local parks and recreation departments, local utilities and field technician/ monitoring positions.
Other careers in environmental science include positions as ecologists, environmental chemists, soil scientists, hydrologists, climatologists, environmental microbiologists, data collection/ sampling/monitoring/field technician positions, wildlife biologists, public health officials and many others. Most of these positions require a four-year degree. Our program is designed to transfer smoothly to area institutions offering four-year degrees in environmental science and other closely related fields.
