Environmental Science Minor

Environmental science is the study of the interactions among the physical, chemical and biological components of the environment. The minor in environmental science provides you with the basic science needed to understand the complex, interdependent issues affecting our natural resources and open spaces. Coursework combines the natural and social sciences. Students choosing the minor also participate in the environmental student group, which organizes hikes, field trips and lectures; plants trees on campus; helps with campus recycling programs; and is active in coordinating campus Earth Day activities.
