An Associate of Applied Science is unique in that it provides students with more practical, hands-on training and/or laboratory work. As a result, students do not spend a much time writing papers or listening to lectures.

 

A student completing an environmental studies program is prepared to work in a variety of fields focusing on solving problems with the environment. These areas include law, education, research, engineering, management and government. A graduate may work as a lobbyist, naturalist, park ranger or environmental engineer.

The United States of America is a large country in North America, often referred to as the "USA", the "US", the "United States", "America", or simply "the States".

About Construction Trades Green Technology

SMC offers both an Associate in Applied Science and a Certificate in Construction Trades Green Technology. The program is built in three phases: certificate phase, associate degree phase and bachelor’s degree phase.

The certificate phase is the ‘hands-on’ phase in which students will spend one year learning construction techniques and code issues and applying their skills in a community construction project such as building a house for Habitat for Humanity or building cabins for a boy scout camp. Students may choose to end their education after attaining the certificate. They will be qualified for jobs as general construction workers. Phase two of the program is the Associate in Applied Science in Construction Trades Green Technology. During this phase, the student learns the science behind construction techniques and the business aspects of contracting. The associate degree qualifies students for jobs as a contractor, safety inspector or crew leader. The optional third phase is transferring to Ferris State University for a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Because of SMC’s articulation agreement with Ferris, 100% of the time, money and effort a student invests in the Construction Trades Green Technology program transfers to Ferris; no time is wasted on classes a student won’t need and students don’t have to catch up on courses after they transfer. A bachelor’s in construction prepares students for commercial work as project superintendents, project managers, project engineers or owner’s representative. Students also have... [-]
