Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies Minor provides an interdisciplinary education engaging socio-cultural, scientific, and technical, issues raised by the oft-conflicting needs and desires of globally interacting societies. Designed to complement any major, the goals of the Environmental Studies Minor include:

  • to help undergraduates develop an awareness of the scientific, cultural, and political aspects of the world's environmental problems; and
  • to better prepare students for further study at the graduate or professional school level and careers in the expanding field of environmental professions.
