Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies minor is designed primarily for students in the arts and sciences who have an interest in environmental issues and policies. This minor provides students with the necessary interdisciplinary academic knowledge to understand complex environmental issues and the social, political, and cultural contexts that affect human interaction with the environment.

Specifically, the curriculum is designed to provide students with an opportunity to apply knowledge from the scientific disciplines in conjunction with the principles of social science to help address some of our most pressing local, regional, and global environmental problems.
