Sustainability Topic: Curriculum
Content Type: Academic Programs
Program Type: Minor


Through integrative, interdisciplinary and applied scholarship, students are introduced to theories and methods of earth and atmospheric sciences. This minor fulfills a need for students majoring in the natural sciences, such as Chemistry or Physics, with an interest in earth systems dynamics; and in the social sciences, for students who are focused on natural resource or energy policy. Collaboration in earth and atmospheric sciences is increasing through the newly formed Climate@Emory Academic Learning Community; interdisciplinary course development and new programmatic initiatives are expected outcomes of these discussions.
