David L. Aagesen, Coordinator (Bailey Hall 233)

The Environmental Studies minor is truly interdisciplinary, with courses from twelve different departments in addition to those courses that have ENVR prefixes. Students are provided with an opportunity to approach environmental issues from a holistic or integrative perspective, and are required to take courses from the social sciences and humanities, as well as from the natural sciences. Qualified students may have opportunities to engage in supervised research related to environmental processes and problems, and they may also conduct an internship with an environmental organization. Students are required to complete eight courses (25-28 credit hours) in at least four different disciplines.

Total Credits Required to Complete Minor: 25-27
