Spotlight on: Environmental Science & Technology

For the month of September, the Library is happy to promote one of the College's new programs:  Environmental Science and Environmental Technology degrees.

From the College website:
"The Associate in Science degree in Spatial Information Technology with a focus in Environmental Science, prepares students for careers and continuing education in natural resource fields. Through this program, students gain an interdisciplinary understanding of the natural world and the science behind current environmental issues. We offer exciting opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning in the classroom, laboratory, and through fieldwork.

The Associate in Science degree in Spatial Information Technology, with a focus in Environmental Technology, offers students many of the same opportunities as our Environmental Science concentration... Our Environmental Technology students are also required to take general courses in science, mathematics, English, and humanities. However, the required content courses for this option really focus on giving students hard skills. We teach our students how to run basic surveying equipment, give them background knowledge of how GPS systems really work, and teach them advanced GIS skills. We also put this environmental technology into context by requiring them to learn about how natural systems work through geology, hydrology, and other natural resource classes."
