Environmental Science A.S. General Transfer
Environmental Science is the study of the interactions between living things, and their interaction with their non-living surroundings. Students of environmental science observe what the interactions are; how they work; how human activities affect the interactions; and how humans are affected. Environmental science is a dynamic, multidisciplinary field encompassing biology, ecology, physics, chemistry, geology, geography, political science, sociology, and economics.
Environmental Science has a wide array of career opportunities. Graduates with an environmental science background find employment in education, industry, politics, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. Potential careers also include wildlife biologist, conservation officer, ecologist, land manager, resource manager, environmental chemist, environmental geologist, health physicist, environmental engineer, soil scientist, forester, demographer, and educator.
What is a TTP?
Tennessee Transfer Pathways are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university to complete their baccalaureate degree. The Tennessee Transfer Pathways also constitute an agreement between community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at Chattanooga State. When the student transfers to a Tennessee public university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer.
