A.S. in Environmental Science Major

The Environmental Science degree is designed to prepare students to pursue an environmental science or related degree at a four year college or university, by teaching them fundamentals of science and introducing them to environmental issues.

Certificates of Specialization

In addition to pursuing an Associates Degree at Feather River College, students can pursue certificates, which can be attained instead of or along with the major. These certificates are designed with seasonal employment in mind. The biological science, forestry, and hydrologic technician certificates were designed to ensure completers have the coursework required to be eligible for employment at the G.S. 4 level within the US Forest Service. The hatchery technician certificate was designed to prepare completers for seasonal employment at California Fish and Wildlife hatcheries. The ecological farming certificate was designed with the input from owners of local farms, and is designed to give students the necessary skills to run a small-scale, sustainable farm.
