The environmental studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor designed to give students specializing in other fields a background in contemporary environmental issues and the ability to analyze such issues. For students majoring in such fields as business and engineering, the minor in environmental studies will provide them with the tools to make better decisions about products or projects related to environmental economics, politic pollutants, environmental policy, and environmental justice. For students who are liberal arts majors, the minor in environmental studies offers the opportunity to focus on the social- and natural-science aspects of the environment, and to be prepared for issues they may encounter in their careers.
