More courses will be added and classroom space for Triton College’s sciences courses are set to double with the opening of Triton College’s newly renovated H Building. And rightfully so, as many of the sciences courses serve as a gateway to Triton’s health career programs; plus there is a demand for careers in sciences, particularly environmental and renewable energy sciences, as society continues to look for ways to be more sustainable.
Triton College offers courses in human biology, chemistry, and anatomy and physiology that reaches across various other disciplines, including horticulture, education and health, sport and exercise science. Associate degrees in chemistry and biological sciences are also available for students to prepare them for careers as food, chemical or environmental technicians, or science research assistants.
With the industry moving toward environmental issues, the college recently added an environmental science associate degree to allow students to explore the relationship between organisms and their environment. With two emphases (or tracks), students can choose from geography/geology or sustainable agriculture, both preparing them for a variety of entry-level positions within the environmental testing and/or consulting industries, or to pursue a bachelor’s degree in environmental science or a related field.
