The Environmental Science Program(ESP) at Clatsop Community College (CCC), while in its infancy, offers opportunities and resources unusual for most lower division students, especially for those exploring the possibilities of working in natural resources and both field and policy related environmentally studies. The ESP is closely tied to our biology program, but has links to General Science, especially GS 105, Meteorology, and GS 161, Oregon Field Biology. All of our ESP courses include inquiry-based labs, and focus on field projects. As well, all of our ESP courses apply to the AAOT and will transfer to nearly all other colleges and universities.
