CCV’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) studies programs will prepare you for a variety of scientific, environmental, and technical sectors. The STEM studies certificate serves as a pathway into the STEM studies or environmental science degree programs, and prepares you for transfer to engineering or other technical degrees. In the STEM studies associate degree program, you’ll have the flexibility to pursue your individual goals in fields such as physical science, life science, and pre-engineering. In the environmental science program, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills for employment in environmental fields, or for transfer into a four-year college or university. In this multidisciplinary program, you’ll learn to relate scientific theory to the environmental considerations that affect our everyday lives. You’ll gain an understanding of current environmental problems, as well as the tools to begin developing solutions. Whatever path you choose, you’ll be well prepared for the workforce or further education. 

CCV programs are stackable, meaning they build on one another as you progress toward your goals. Individual classes can be applied to credentials, credentials to certificates, and certificates to degrees. Check out our certificate to degree maps and explore the stackable program options available to you.
