Division of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

This program focuses on environmental science issues such as air and water testing and analysis, industrial waste treatment, municipal wastewater treatment, and environmental law. In obtaining an understanding of the complex interrelationships that exist at the earth’s surface, students learn how to interpret environmental stresses, such as ground and surface water contamination, pesticide, degradation, and solid waste disposal. Students also learn how to apply this knowledge to occupational safety and protection.

Upon successful completion, the Associate in Science Degree in Environmental Sciences & Safety is awarded.
