Department of Environmental Studies, College of the Environment
Environmental Studies takes an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to understanding human-environment systems and environmental challenges. The Environmental Studies minor includes core classes in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities to prepare our students to integrate knowledge from multiple fields of study into their chosen field.
Why Consider an Environmental Studies Minor?
Do you want to complement your major with an interdisciplinary minor that reflects the complexity of society’s environmental challenges? Do you want to understand the interactions and interdependencies between human and natural systems? Then Environmental Studies is the minor for you.
