Environmental Studies

Tacoma Community College - Tacoma, WA

  • AAS

TCC offers courses that cover the first 2 years of a typical 4-year environmental studies program, as well as courses to develop skills needed for college-level courses. Most 4-year colleges offer an environmental studies degree in one form or another. Sometimes it is a stand-alone bachelor's degree, and other times it is a minor, or an area of emphasis. For students attending TCC, the most common pathway is to earn a TCC Associate of Arts and Sciences Degree, taking care to choose the proper coursework outlined on this page and transfer to the University of Washington Tacoma (UWT) as juniors. The degree at UWT is a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) from Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in environmental studies. Students who intend to transfer somewhere other than UWT should consult with an environmental sciences advisor as the information in this document is specific to UWT'S program only. Here is a quote about UWT'S Environmental Studies Program from their website: "Starting with a core of courses in the earth and life sciences, it branches out to examine legal, economic, literary, historical and philosophical perspectives on the environment. The focus is inherently interdisciplinary and addresses both global and local issues. Collectively, environmental studies courses explore how scientific information gets translated by political and cultural arenas into social, ethical, legal and technological responses to environmental problems."
