The Environmental Studies & Sustainability Program is an interdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary, course of study that presents a broad overview of ecological issues from a variety of perspectives in the natural, physical, and social sciences. The coursework examines the interplay between natural and social systems, and the ideological foundations of humankind's attitudes and behaviors with respect to their ever-changing environment. This program is designed to prepare students to research, analyze, and propose solutions to the myriad environmental challenges facing the world today. The Environmental Studies & Sustainability Associate of Science degree is designed to correlate with the lower division courses required to transfer into an Environmental Studies Program at many four-year institutions as well as a broad education for transfer in related disciplines.
