Environmental Science

Students completing this certificate program will be prepared for entry-level positions in natural resource management agencies or for transfer to 2 or 4 year degree-granting institutions. Students will also be well-positioned to continue their studies toward the KBOCC Environmental Science Associate Degree, since the certificate retains the core components of the Associate Degree. Depending on placement (for composition and mathematics requirements), full-time students could feasibly complete the certificate program in one year.
