Environmental Studies Minor

Welcome to Environmental Studies (ENVS)! Open to all Majors: you can add some "green" to any degree. The Environmental Studies minor is an excellent complement to any major, and serves to enhance your career opportunities. You earn an Environmental Studies minor through 15 credit hours, drawing from the expertise of faculty and departments across campus. The goal is to broaden your perspective, while allowing you to follow your individual interests. You will expand your viewpoint and gain new skills for environmental analysis. For example, you can learn more about environmental ethics and media, ecology and wildlife; environmental education and policies; green buildings and organizations. The possibilities to widen your knowledge base are nearly endless. This minor helps unify the theme of environmental studies, while creating individual paths for student success. 
The Environmental Studies minor is built around one core course, three topic courses (Environment, Society, Skills), and one unifying final course.
