About Environmental Studies
A 20/20 Working College Model for Our Students
Our 20/20 working college model includes 20 hours of coursework and community service and 20 hours of stewardship work and civic engagement for our students. Help us encourage our students to stay in school, learn workplace and life skills, and make a difference in their community. Would you consider sponsoring a student for a quarter - so our students can be trained as mentors and community leaders while taking classes and working with our leadership team?
De Anza College's Environmental Studies Department integrates physical, biological, human, socioeconomic and political principles. Formal and non-formal methods of teaching help students acquire the basics of this field. These include a scientific foundation, an understanding of social and economic concepts, and an awareness of the behaviors that protect or damage the earth and its resources.
Students in this department are trained for exciting career opportunities in some of the fastest growing fields in the country. Participants range from entry-level students to already trained professionals. Highly qualified faculty and experienced students make this a rich learning opportunity.
