Environmental Management encompasses the principles of science, engineering and communication to protect and enhance the safety and health of our communities and natural resources. The Associate of Science award and Certificate of Achievement award emphasize the study of the effects of hazardous substances on the environment and the solutions to help minimize environmental pollutants and their effects on the environment.
