The environmental science 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. Please see the career module for more insight on which of these tracks would be best for you and your career goals. Both tracks integrate biology, chemistry and geology and lead to an Associate in Science degree which should transfer to 4-year institutions following the MACRAO and 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.
This is a high demand, high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
