Purpose: This curriculum is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a baccalaureate degree in environmental science, environmental biology, natural resource management, forestry or wildlife science.

Program Objectives: Graduates who do not plan to transfer may pursue employment at the technical level as environmental science and protection technicians, working with natural resources, agriculture, water resources, or waste water management.

Admission Requirements: Applicants must meet the requirements for admission to credit-level coursework established by the college.

Developmental Requirements: Students who do not place into college-level English will be required to take developmental courses.

Students who do not demonstrate proficiency in MTE 1 , MTE 2 , MTE 3 , MTE 4 , MTE 5 , MTE 6 , MTE 7 , MTE 8  and MTE 9  will be required to take developmental courses.

It is strongly recommended that developmental education requirements be completed as soon as possible.
