The Climate Science minor helps students become informed citizens as they understand and articulate why climate change is happening. Students will study the interactions between Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere and learn how these interactions drive climate. They will also learn how climate is modeled and better understand policy and economics associated with climate change. Finally, students will consider what citizens can do to minimize and mitigate climate change.
