We are faced with unprecedented global changes in the years ahead: meeting our energy needs in a clean and safe manner, reducing, reusing and disposing of our wastes, developing more effective agricultural practices - the list is endless. With this reality in mind Hudson Valley has taken the initiative to develop an environmental major designed to prepare students to continue their studies in the field of environmental science/studies and ultimately pursue a related career.
Required course work includes both physical and social sciences and additional elective courses to explore the many aspects of environmental issues. The major features two four-credit courses formulated to integrate theoretical concepts, policy analysis and laboratory experience. Transfer agreements are updated regularly.
Hudson Valley Community College cooperates with SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry Ranger School Campus (ESF) by offering a special 1+1 program. Students interested in this special Forest Technology program should enroll in the Environmental Science program for their first year of study and then transfer to ESF for the second year of the 1+1 program.
Program Entrance Requirements
|Algebra, geometry and algebra II or 3 units of equivalent academic math, biology and chemistry (80 or above in each course)
||Fall and Spring
||80 or above
The estimated cost of books for the student enrolled in the first full-time term as outlined would be approximately $615.
