Beginning this fall the Community College of Vermont will offer an associate degree in Environmental Science. This new program is designed to prepare students for employment in areas of the environment or for transfer to a four-year institution of higher learning.
Students choose a focus area geared toward conservation of natural resources, energy efficiency, or environmental literacy. Students will gain an understanding of environmental problems and obtain the knowledge and skills to begin developing solutions.
The college is holding a free informational session for anyone interested in the program on Monday, May 3, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the CCV Upper Valley location, 145 Billings Farm Road in Wilder. For more information, visit www.ccv.edu or call 295-8822.
