The Environmental Studies Minor will help students to identify, analyze, communicate about, and influence the complex forces that shape the environment and the lives of living things. Studies will focus on the interactions between humans and other components of the natural environment.
Coursework will combine selected studies in the earth's physical, chemical, and/or biological systems with studies in the humanities and social systems. A capstone experience, in which the student completes an environmentally beneficial experience outside of class, is a key part of this minor.
For formal description of the program, visit the 2011-2012 catalog.
To discuss any questions about the minor program, please contact the Chair or other committee members.
Program Committee Members
A learning plan must be submitted to the ENVS Minor Committee before a student can be officially admitted to the minor. This should occur no later than the third semester before graduation. The learning plan template is available in either Word or PDF format and should be submitted to the ENVS Committee chair via e-mail by October 15 (for fall review) or March 15 (for spring review). Please put 'ENVS Learning Plan' in the Re: line to ensure prompt attention to your submission.
