2016-17 Catalogs

Minor in Environmental Science

The minor in environmental science, coupled with a science or liberal arts degree, helps prepare a student for entry into the environmental fields or advanced study.

All courses taken to satisfy the requirements for a minor in environmental science must be completed with a grade of C- or better. This minor is not available to students pursuing a BS in Environmental Science. Environmental Planning and Policy majors may double-count up to 9 credits of courses used in their major toward use in the minor.

18 credits of environmental science courses (not courses in environmental planning or policy) are required for the minor. Students may transfer up to four (4) credits of comparable environmental science courses from other institutions.

All students must complete ESP 101, ESP 102, ESP 203, and collaborate with a department faculty member to develop an individual course of study.


ESP 101 and 102 should be completed first. Some advanced environmental science classes may also have ESP, chemistry, biology, and/or mathematics prerequisites.
