Students may choose to pursue a minor in Environmental Studies by completing a blend of science, social science, and interdisciplinary courses. A student may broaden his or her understanding of the science and policy of the Earth’s environmental challenges through this program, which is designed to compliment any undergraduate major.
The goals of the Environmental Studies Minor are three-fold,
- to help undergraduates develop an awareness of the scientific, cultural, and political aspects of the world’s environmental problems;
- to better prepare students for careers in the expanding field of environmental professions;
- to prepare students for further study at the graduate or professional school level.
