|The environmental management program prepares students to apply the principles of environmental science and engineering to contemporary environmental problems in both natural resource and industrial contexts. Students from a variety of majors can pursue an interdisciplinary minor in environmental management. After completing prerequisite foundation courses in science and math, students pursue the minor by completing core courses and a concentration, optionally culminating in a capstone thesis or project. The environmental management program strives to develop graduates who are literate in and competent with the foundation sciences and mathematics underlying environmental science and engineering, and who can apply science and technology to a broad range of practical environmental problems.|
|The environmental management minor requires at total of 22 credits, excluding prerequisite cognate courses and an optional seminar and thesis. The cognate courses, or their equivalents, must have been completed successfully before the student may be enrolled in the environmental management minor. This may be accomplished as part of the studentís major.
|The environmental management minor concentrates in one of two areas, natural resources and industrial systems. Students should be aware that some of the listed courses may have additional prerequisites.
