Minor in Environmental Studies
This program provides students and faculty an exciting place to engage in interdisciplinary, engaged teaching and learning about the interaction between humans and the environments they depend upon. The program integrates humanities, natural and social science, environmental policy and planning perspectives. Students will gain the broad educational background needed to assist in developing sustainable development policies to create positive social change within the environmental context. Real world links to practical environmental issues are developed through environmental problem-solving at the local and regional levels, faculty-led research projects, internships and participation in campus environmental planning. The ENS minor is structured for students with strong interest in environmental issues but who do not necessarily wish to pursue post-graduate opportunities in the natural sciences.
