A Chemical Technology Option
Note: Beginning in fall 2008, environmental science students requiring remediation in algebra must complete MAT 016, Intermediate Algebra, prior to taking courses in Biology and Chemistry.
The Environmental Science option is accredited by the American Chemical Society, Chemical Technology Program Approved Service (CTPAS).
This two-year degree program is designed for students who plan to enter the rapidly growing field of environmental science. The curriculum stresses the interdisciplinary nature of ecological problems and provides students with a wide range of courses necessary to prepare them for the environmental challenges of the 21st century.
Our graduates have the theoretical and technical expertise required to enter such diversified fields as water pollution control, environmental analysis of water, air and soil, hazardous waste management, site remediation (cleanup) and a variety of others.
The program also provides several introductory courses which may be transferable into a four-year degree program in environmental science.
County College of Morris is a member of the New Jersey Marine Science Consortium (NJMSC), a private, nonprofit organization comprised of member colleges, universities and private groups interested in marine affairs. Students may enroll in a variety of summer courses, including BIO 260, 262, 267, and 269, which may be used as electives in the Environmental Science Option (3451) with the permission of your academic advisor. Courses are offered at the Marine Sciences Laboratory at Sandy Hook, NJ during the summer. Other courses include field trips or the use of equipment and facilities of the Consortium.
Science courses completed by students prior to entering the Environmental Science option must be less than seven years old. If the science courses exceed the seven-year limit, students can prove their competency by testing or they must retake the courses.
