Improving the environment is no minor task

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.

The advantage to adding an environmental studies minor to your current major is that because of the broad coverage, many of the required courses will also cover your GE or LE requirements for your major. This is a great opportunity to add a valuable minor to your degree without having to add to your coursework or time to graduation!
