Environmental Science, Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by College

The minor in environmental science is designed to expose students to the interdisciplinary nature of environmental issues, with emphasis on the current scientific methods used to study these issues. This minor is intended to provide students with a firm foundation in the language, concepts and methods of Environmental Science as well as perspectives on current issues concerning the environment. While this minor emphasizes the fundamentals of natural and applied environmental science, this minor also incorporates 3-7 credits outside of these areas to help students gain a better appreciation for the interdependent nature of human behavior and environmental health.

Any student who is interested in the relationship between humans and their environment is encouraged to participate. Students from a wide-range of primary disciplines, from the sciences to the social science, humanities, business and arts may benefit from this minor area of specialization.


Choose one course from the electives in environmental policy and two courses from the electives in environmental science. Note: at least 8 of these credits must be at the 300-level or above.
