This program is designed to prepare students to deal with environmental issues and concerns from a global point of view. Students will select from two tracks, one focusing on physical science and the other emphasizing the social science perspective. Both tracks integrate biology, chemistry and geology and lead to an Associate in Science degree which should transfer to 4-year institutions following the MTA guidelines. Students will have first-hand lab experiences studying environmental problems from a scientific perspective as well as proposing and implementing solutions to sustainability. The program prepares students for careers in resource management, waste management, sustainability, environmental consultation and other related fields.
