The TMCC Associate of Science degree program in Environmental Science is articulated with the Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). This agreement provides for a seamless transfer from TMCC to UNR for students in the program, meaning you can enter UNR as a junior. This upper-division status provides for scholarship options and summer work opportunities in the field of environment research.
