This program is designed to prepare students for careers in the dynamic field of environmental science, which is concerned with monitoring humanity’s impact on the Earth and solving environmental problems. Students graduating from this program might work in environmental education centers, public relations firms, testing labs, environmental research organizations, travel/tourism (ecotourism companies), food manufacturers, waste management companies, or government agencies. The program provides students with a strong background in the natural sciences and is attractive to four-year institutions that offer baccalaureate or graduate degrees in environmental studies, where OCC graduates may apply for additional preparation in the field.
