CMC to offer environmental science this fall

Based on student interest and a collegewide commitment to sustainability and projected growth in environmental careers, Colorado Mountain College is launching two new areas of study related to environmental sustainability.

The first academic program will begin this fall for an associate of science degree with an emphasis on environmental science. Colorado Department of Labor statistics project a 10-year growth rate of 25 percent for environmental scientists and technicians through 2018.

The second program, which will kick off in fall 2011, is an associate of arts degree with an emphasis in environmental studies. This program is grounded in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, and will include coursework in ethics, economics and environmental science.

Introduction to Environmental Science, which is a guaranteed-transfer-level course and is required by both new programs, will be offered this fall at four CMC campuses, in Glenwood Springs/Spring Valley, as well as in Steamboat Springs, Edwards and Leadville.
