The Environmental Science Program allows students to develop the skills and interdisciplinary understanding needed to deal with environmental systems and human impacts on those systems. Students should consult with a program adviser to assure proper course planning.
The B.A./B.S. degrees in environmental science rest on an interdisciplinary curriculum that develops understanding and expertise in environmental science by building on a foundation in mathematics, natural sciences, and economics complemented by related courses in environmental policy and management. Students complete field experiences working on projects in the University, metropolitan community, and region.
The Environmental Science Program cooperates with several departments and centers, including the departments of Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Economics, Geography, Geology, History, Mathematics,Physics, Political Science, Sociology; the Center for Science Education; the School of Business Administration; and the College of Urban and Public Affairs.
PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
