We have two minors currently offered under the environmental studies program. One of those is a minor in environmental sciences. Do you care about the environment? Whether it is air, water, or land – this minor will take your passion for improvement to the next level. No matter what your major is, this minor can be a great addition, as many companies, agencies, and entities are seeking employees with broad environmental knowledge.
