Minor in Environmental Studies

The purpose of the interdisciplinary environmental studies minor is to provide students with an opportunity better to understand environmental issues and to contribute more fully to modern society. The program is designed to foster an appreciation for science, social science, and humanities attitudes and approaches to studying the environment. This approach involves problem solving and decision making, skills that will continue to increase in importance for college graduates. Additionally, an environmental studies minor will provide students with experience in an interdisciplinary setting. Graduates will have a better understanding of our environment and, it is hoped, will continue to develop the skills to work cooperatively with others.

Students considering a minor in environmental studies should plan their course work in consultation with a member of the Interdepartmental Committee. Any member of the committee may be consulted; however, students are initially advised to seek out a member in their major field of study.
