Make Colorado Your Classroom with Environmental Studies

Mountain living contributes to a transferable degree designed to give you a broad experience on-campus and in the field. Our Associate in Arts degree prepares you for transfer into four-year environmental studies programs.

Depending on the electives you select, the degree also provides an excellent foundation for four-year degrees in environmental policy, resource economics or sustainability studies. Work closely with an advisor to choose courses that best meet your four-year degree goals.

Graduates of environmental studies programs work in a wide variety of careers. Many graduates move onto work in the fields of:

  • Environmental advocacy
  • Politics
  • Journalism
  • Environmental education
  • Environmental anthropology
