The Environmental Studies minor encourages non-majors to pursue their interests in the environment, environmental education and sustainability. It formally recognizes that this program has an obligation to provide high quality educational opportunities to all CSUMB students who want a deeper understanding of sustainability in order to make informed contributions to their community on environmental issues.

The Environmental Studies minor provides students with an opportunity to explore their particular interests in the social dimensions of environmental issues and environmental problem solving.

Virtually all human activities have environmental impacts, both positive and negative. The Environmental Studies minor provides students with the ability to use the disciplinary knowledge and skills of the major to promote sustainabilty-focused values and practices.
