MCC will be offering a new program for Sustainability Sciences in Fall of 2018.
There are already two courses developed around environmental science at the college, according to the College’s website.
According to the website, Parag Muley, of the Natural Sciences Department, said, “This field is a critical one for the planet.”
The program will not officially start until the fall, but students are already taking a new course that the college offered, which is Intro to Sustainability. The class was filled and very popular among students, according to the website.
Professor Claire Condie is teaching Climatology already and brings students to volunteer at beach clean ups annually. Students who take the new sustainability course will be able to transfer the credit to New Jersey colleges that offer environmental science as a major.
