The Environmental Studies Minor serves to enhance diverse majors representing varied disciplines and seeks to assist students pursuing job opportunities in the areas of Environmental Resources, Policy, Education and Sustainability.

The Environmental Studies Minor is designed to incorporate elements from both the Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.) in Environmental Studies and the Bachelor of Arts Degree (B.A.) in Environmental Sustainability. In this regard, the Environmental Studies Minor requires an introductory course followed by a sampling of courses from the Social Science and Humanities Core, and the Natural Science Core. Remaining requirements are focused on specialty Track Courses and an environmental internship. Completion of this Environmental Studies Minor will provide students with a good general foundation in environmental coursework, field studies and professional experiences.

Course Requirements: 9 courses (25 credits).
