Announcing a new Associate Degree program at CCRI “Environment, Sustainability, and Management”

Enrollment is now open!

This innovative first-of-its-kind program, created at CCRI in collaboration with Rhode Island Nursery & Landscape Association and Rhode Island Food Policy Council, provides a clear path toward careers in RI’s growing land and sea industries.

The new associate degree in Environment, Sustainability, and Management is an interdisciplinary program that blends science and business; provides work-based learning opportunities for credit; includes courses in Business, Biology, Entrepreneurship, Oceanography, Geology, Economics, Chemistry, and Communications; and positions graduates to chart successful career paths in the landscape, farm, and food sectors – and arm them with the perspective they need to meet social, economic, and ecological challenges of the world and of business today.

Graduates from CCRI will have immediate career opportunities and can also transfer seamlessly as juniors to the University of Rhode Island’s bachelor’s degree programs in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems, Plant Sciences, and other programs in the College of the Environment and Life Sciences (CELS).

Fall classes start August 31, 2022. Enrollment is now open. All Rhode Islanders who want the knowledge, skills, perspective and experiences to impact the social, economic, and ecological challenges of today’s world are encouraged to register. Additional information can be found on CCRI’s website:

The development of this associate degree program was supported by a grant from the Agriculture Workforce Development Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
