Many students choose to earn an associate degree to learn the foundational knowledge and skills of a subject. Associate degrees can help students pursue career opportunities or prepare them for further study in a bachelor’s degree program.

What is an Associate of Science in Environmental Sciences? Environmental sciences encompass the study of the environment and potential improvements for its sustainability. This field incorporates many different scientific concentrations, such as biology, chemistry, geology and more. Courses in this type of degree program typically explore the fundamentals behind observing the environment, including the study of energy, pollution and social trends. Through research and analysis of different issues, students can prepare for a career in improving the earth’s climate and environment.

For students of environmental sciences, it is ideal for them to focus on developing their critical thinking and analytical skills. Through various research projects, students often practice and improve their academic writing skills that can ultimately help improve overall communication.

The cost of earning an associate degree depends on the type of school offering the degree and how many courses are required to complete it. However, an associate degree is usually a much cheaper and quicker option for additional education than earning a bachelor’s degree.

While an associate degree can help students enter the field of environmental sciences, a bachelor’s degree can typically improve one’s chances of finding a higher paying position. An environmental sciences degree can open the door for students to become town planners, transportation planners, waste treatment officers, water quality inspectors and more. Students may choose to focus on environmental career options as well including positions like recycling officer, conservationist and environmental manager, consultant, or educator.

Many community colleges, universities and other educational institutions around the world offer associate degrees in a multitude of subjects. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Very few things are more fundamental to the human condition and civilization itself than the natural resource base our economy is predicated upon. The state, nation and the world needs qualified persons in order to locate, utilize, and manage these resources, as well as protect human interests via environmental monitoring and remediation. Studies involving our planet and its resources are a large mandate. Thus the Department of Geosciences and Agriculture offers several concentrations under the NRES major. Agriculture – A Purdue transfer program where students may focus on the beginnings of plant or animal agriculture studies along with fundamental core courses. The success of our Purdue transfer students is over 95% Forestry and Conservation – Timber resource overuse was the origin of our nation’s conservation movement in the late 1800s. Now trained professionals to manage these and other resources for the benefit of our own, and future, generation(s). Geology – The modern science of geology was created for the purpose of finding coal to fuel the Industrial Revolution. The search for Earth’s energy resources is still an important endeavor – such as both coal and oil in Indiana. Geologists also assist in the discovery and management of mineral and water resources, as well as remediation procedures associated with resource extraction and use. Geography – A field where the “lay of the land” is studied via geospatial sciences, and weather, climate, culture, and sociopolitical boundaries are explored. -
