About the Environmental Studies Undergraduate Minor Program
The college offers an interdisciplinary minor in environmental studies. This minor is nontechnical in nature and specifically designed for students seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree. It focuses on the interaction of humans and the natural environment and the consequences of that interaction. The minor does not train professional environmentalists but will, in combination with existing major programs, give students a broad foundation as preparation for more advanced environmental studies programs; professional work in law, regional planning, or resource management; and various environmental positions in government, business, or teaching. The minor also will provide students with a better understanding of basic ecology and the nature of environmental problems in order to make more knowledgeable value judgments on environmental issues.
The minor consists of 18 hours of elective courses. No more than two courses from any department or program may count toward the minor. At least 6 hours must be from upper-division courses. Courses that students use to fulfill their major requirements may not be applied toward fulfillment of requirements for an environmental studies minor. A course may count toward a major or minor, but not both.
