Promoting an understanding of the interaction of human beings with their environment is the focus of Environmental Studies. Career opportunities cover a wide range of positions in public agencies, business, industry and nonprofit organizations which need individuals who can provide up-to-date environmental information and assist in compliance with environmental regulations. This transfer major combines courses from the biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. The college now boasts a Green Technology Educational Pathway Initiative (GTPI) to help prepare students for success in this ever-evolving world. The GTPI is a collaborative among education, business, and the community that has spent several years developing programs promoting sustainability practices and training students in the skills needed to fill the emerging “green jobs.”
