The growing emphasis on environmental issues has created a demand for skilled specialists in the area of environmental science and natural resources management. This curriculum is a guide to students planning to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor of science degree in Environmental Science, Ecology, or Natural Resources Management. Students may select from the following two tracks: Environmental Science and Ecological Technology Design. The Ecological Technology Design track is designed to transfer to the University of Maryland College Park. Students are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer.

General Education Core

Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s total of general education and required courses must equal at least 60 semester hours of credit.
