Environmental Science Minor

The Environmental Science minor explores a wide range of scientific inquiry associated with the physical and social sciences. Students may choose to construct a broad-based minor with course work from a number of participating departments or from a set of courses that emphasize a specific field (e.g. Global Change Issues). The minor is designed for students interested in pursuing careers within environmental education, environmental law or environmental monitoring and regulation. The minor is suited to journalism students who desire a broad background in environmental issues covered by the mass media.
