Ne öğreneceğim?

The associate in science degree in environmental science offers a distinctive program of interdisciplinary study. It is a field of inquiry exploring energy and climate systems and their complex relationships with the world’s diverse human cultures. To achieve this goal, students and faculty work together across disciplines to develop an understanding of environmental sustainability in all its dimensions. The program focuses on current environmental concerns that have far-reaching implications for the fate of human society, ecological systems, and energy diversity. This involves an integration of knowledge from a variety of disciplines to understand the function of the ecological system and human impact upon these systems at a local, regional, and global scale.

Students are advised that there are a wide range of environmental science areas of emphasis offered at the university level. Therefore, while choosing electives, students are advised to consult with a counselor or faculty advisor to select courses that will meet the requirements of an area of emphasis at their selected transfer institution. DVC environmental science students who intend to transfer must consult with a program advisor or counselor to ensure that the requirements for transfer to four-year institutions of their choice are met. Students who intend to transfer are advised to select either General Education Option 2 (IGETC) or Option 3 (CSU GE). General Education Option 1 (DVC General Education) is appropriate for students who do not intend to transfer. To earn an associate in science degree, students must complete each required course with a “C” grade or higher and complete general education requirements as listed in the catalog. Degree requirements can be completed by attending classes in the day, evening, online, or a combination of those. Certain classes may satisfy both major and other general education requirements; however, the units are only counted once.

Students completing the program will be able to...

A. differentiate between different biotic and abiotic components of the environment.

B. explain and analyze man-made impacts on the environment.

C. apply the scientific method for environmental analysis.

D. explain, illustrate and analyze chemical bonds and reactions.

E. apply environmental science concepts and analytical procedures in various fields.

Possible career opportunities

Career opportunities in the field of environmental studies have grown with the increase of human population and the need to document and study the relationship between humans and nature. Environmental scientists are needed to monitor, interpret, analyze and enforce the guidelines of governmental policies. Careers include working for the government at all levels, working for companies in science and technology, as well as working in companies in energy fields. Such specialties include pollution prevention, resource conservation and environmental restoration, environmental stewardship, and newly emerging fields such as energy management technology, geospatial technology, and biodiversity preservation. Individuals studying in this field are trained to provide both public and private environmental services in a variety of settings: private business, consulting services and government agencies.
