WEST LAUNCHES 1st CA COMMUNITY COLLEGE CLIMATE CHANGE STUDIES DEGREE

While other institutions offer programs that center on the environment, West’s new program aims to specifically study climate change – making predictions based on comparing and contrasting the long-term averages of conditions for a region including temperature records, precipitation records, fire hazards, drought susceptibility, species range shifts and more. The program will provide a broad background in the science of climate change, but also has components in disciplines such as humanities and social sciences...new program
