Environmental Studies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors)

The environmental studies minor is designed primarily to serve undergraduate education and environmental literacy. Research and graduate education, and community education and service are other goals. Top priority is given to providing a large number of students with the opportunity to assess the nature, scope, and complexities of present and impending environmental problems. Other objectives include the provision of public education programs on environmental issues and the stimulation of interdisciplinary research on environmental problems. The development of expertise as an environmental specialist requires specialized work which can be pursued through the environmental studies major.

Department-approved elective Credits: 3-5

Total Credits: 24-29

Additional Information

Students choosing an environmental studies minor will propose an upper-division elective course in consultation with, and subject to, the pre-approval of the ENST Director. This elective course must be taken for a grade and be in a department outside the student’s major. The following courses, however, will automatically be accepted without pre-approval provided they meet the other elective requirements: any other ENST course, ANTH/GEOG 440, BIOL 360, ECON 462, GEOG 445, HIST 454, SOC 380, POSC 320, or CHEM 345.

The minor requires that students finish with a minimum 2.0 GPA for their 25-30 program credits, and students must also earn at least a C- in each of the six courses that comprise their ENST program.
