Completion of the requirements for the Associate in Science in Environmental Science and Technology prepares students for transfer to a California State University, a University of California, a university of their choice to further engage in work towards a baccalaureate degree in Environmental Science or to enter the job market. As an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary course of study, students will be presented an overview of ecological issues from a scientific perspective. With a broad foundation across the natural, physical and biological sciences, students will better understand the interrelated nature of environmental and social systems. This program is designed to equip students with the skills and tools to successfully use the scientific method while studying and solving environmental problems.
Ohlone projects that approximately 10 students will complete this degree annually.
Completion of the requirements for the Associate in Science in Environmental Science and Technology prepares a student for transfer to a California State University, a University of California, or a university of their choice to further engage in work towards a baccalaureate degree in Environmental Science. As an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary course of study, students will be prepared to further their studies in ecological and biological principles, environmental health and safety, environmental epidemiology, environmental chemistry, resource conservation and management solutions,environmental justice, industrial hygiene, and applied ecology, all aimed to better understand the interrelationships between organisms and their environment. Through laboratory intensive curriculum, students will also learn quantitative skills in utilizing analytical tools.
a. Complete Major Field courses.
b. Complete at least six units at Ohlone College.
c. Maintain a 2.0 grade point average in Major Fieldcourses.
