Message from the Curriculum Chair
A degree in Environmental Studies is ideal if you are interested in a career helping to shape environmental policies. Such policies are necessary to tackle the important issues of global climate change, sustainability, natural resource management, and protecting ecosystems. It is a great time to enter this expanding field, and a degree from Westchester Community College is a great place to start.
