The Associate in Science Degree in Environmental Science

The Associate in Science Degree in Environmental Science provides interdisciplinary preparation for students wishing to pursue knowledge and employment in the fields of environmental research, consulting, and regulatory oversight. The program provides excellent lower division preparation for students transferring to Environmental Science (and related) programs at four-year colleges and universities.

The goal of LMC's new Environmental Science Program is to create a signature magnet program that attracts students from all reaches of the county, involves teachers and professors from the region's many feeder schools and universities, and builds bridges to the industries, government agencies, and institutes that are seeking an increased workforce. For the Associate of Science Degree in Environmental Science, complete 39 units of coursework listed below as well as the LMC General Education and Graduation requirements. Consult a Los Medanos College counselor to develop your education plan for the Associate of Science Degree.
