En­viron­men­tal sci­ence stud­ies how the na­tural world works, how we as hu­mans inter­act with and af­fect the environ­ment, and ways to prevent, correct or reduce damage to the environ­ment and pro­tect human health and wel­fare.

An as­soci­ate de­gree in environ­mental sci­ence at Lee College is de­signed to pre­pare stu­dents to trans­fer to a four-year col­lege or uni­versity with the goal of com­plet­ing a bach­elor's de­gree in enviro­nmental sci­ence or a re­lated field.

An AS in environ­mental sci­ence could also pre­pare you for en­try-lev­el techni­cal or assist­ant posi­tions in edu­ca­tional and labora­tory environ­ments.
