Environmental Studies Minor

Environmental Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that provides the opportunity for students from any major to study the environmental issues that are integral to the way we live today and the impacts our actions will have on the future.

As environmental issues are inherently interdisciplinary, drawing from multiple disciplines (including the sciences, social sciences, and humanities) enables students to choose a combination of courses that fit with their interests and goals.
