Integrated Environmental Studies

Designed for students who have earned a vocational or technical associate degree in green technology from an accredited community college, this integrated environmental studies program can help you further develop your knowledge and learn the skills today’s employers are looking for.

Apply your previous experience

Using the associate degree you’ve already earned as an area of concentration, the rest of your major coursework will explore the environmental and natural sciences while helping you develop your written and oral communication skills – skills that can help you advance in your chosen field.

Capstone project

Drawing upon the knowledge you’ve gained at Hiram, this project will challenge you to solve a real-world problem or examine a relevant issue from a new perspective.

This includes the research and development of a paper related to your associate degree and the knowledge obtained at Hiram. Ultimately, this project culminates in a presentation, reflecting an accurate assessment of the knowledge you’ve acquired.
