Arm yourself with the environmental literacy you’ll need to address real-world challenges in the public or private sectors. Just as the strongest trees boast the deepest roots, this minor—offered through the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts—will provide you with a foundation in microeconomics, environmental ethics, geography, or environmental sociology.
Trek into careers in forestry, natural resource management, wildlife conservation, toxicology, sustainability, and more and build a background to understand a range of complex environmental issues.
Through a critical awareness of conflicting issues, your environmental studies coursework will give you the ability to provide solutions, express your individual ideas, and gain a mindset of continuous improvement. By examining multifaceted environmental concerns, you will see how our society and the choices we make can impact our natural resources and the world we live in.
Gain a professional advantage by incorporating the skills from your major with the knowledge and ability to research, examine, and contribute to a global perspective on environmental advocacy. A minor in environmental studies will strengthen a major in organizational communication, management, marketing, the natural sciences, education, social work, or liberal arts majors such as English, sociology, or political science.
