The Environmental Science minor (18 credits) prepares the student for postgraduate education or employment in environmentally related fields (e.g., environmental health and safety, government policy-making, non-governmental organizations). To ensure maximum breadth and depth of training, the schedule of elective courses for the minor in environmental science must be in science disciplines other than the student’s own major and be formally developed with the department chairperson. Through a curriculum that reaches from ecology to biology to environmental law, environmental science minors develop the conceptual knowledge and technical skills necessary to address environmental problems.

The Environmental Science minor is designed for science majors but any undergraduate student can declare the Environmental Science minor. Non-science majors should consider the minor in Environmental Studies.
