Environmental Studies Minor
Faculty members from a wide range of departments have organized a new interdisciplinary minor – Environmental Studies. A minor in environmental studies is designed to introduce students to an interdisciplinary approach to environmental concerns, including: 1) a study of human / environmental interactions from the viewpoint of the social sciences; 2) a reflection on environmental themes in the arts and humanities; 3) the scientific foundations of environmental thought.
The Environmental Studies minor consists of ENVS 101: Classics of Modern Environmental Literature, either BISC 104 or BISC 162, and 12 hours of approved electives. The approved electives must include a minimum of three hours in at least two of the three discipline categories: Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences.
