Program Overview

The Associate in Science in Environmental Science for Transfer (AS-T) from Skyline College prepares students for transfer to a baccalaureate institution to obtain a degree in Environmental Science, Environmental Studies or a closely related discipline. Additionally, this degree allows students to learn the fundamental principles and practices in Environmental Science in order to create a solid foundation and solid preparation that is appropriate for a variety of scientific disciplines. The program will produce students well prepared to transfer to the California State University system to undertake a study of upper division theoretical and/or applied course work in Environmental Science.
