Crawfordville, FL (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
In the spring of 2013, Tallahassee Community College is expanding its offerings to include a Water Quality Technician Certificate and an Environmental Science Technology A.S. Degree. The new programs represent the first phase of TCC’s Wakulla Environmental Institute, with the goal of preparing the next generation of environmental professionals.
TCC’s new certificate and degree programs will qualify students to work in the technical areas of water quality, natural resource management and environmental monitoring with the local, state and national levels of government and private enterprises such as environmental consulting firms. Environmental science technology careers offer opportunities to make a difference in the community and to work in a variety of settings from laboratories to the field.
TCC’s environmental science technology programs are ideal for working students that require flexible class schedules, with courses offered online and in the classroom.
“These programs combine TCC’s academics with the incredible biodiversity and natural resources of Wakulla County,” said Pamela MacRae, assistant professor of biology at TCC. “It’s a unique opportunity to have such an environment to use as a classroom.”
TCC plans to implement additional Wakulla Environmental Institute programs in the coming semesters, including hospitality and tourism management, aquaculture management, parks and leisure technology, and agribusiness management.
