Department of Environmental Science and Policy

Minor in Environmental Science

This is an 18-credit minor in environmental science. Coupled with a science or liberal arts degree, the minor helps prepare a student for entry into the environmental fields or advanced study.

Students who are not Environmental Science majors who want to minor in environmental science must complete 18 credits of environmental science courses (not courses in environmental planning or policy) with a grade of C- or higher. Students may transfer up to four (4) credits of comparable environmental science courses from other institutions. All students must complete ESP 101 and ESP 102 and collaborate with a department faculty member to develop an individual course of study.

Environmental Planning and Policy majors may double-count up to 9 credits of environmental science courses used in their major toward use in the environmental science minor.

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