What is the minor in Environmental Studies?
The minor in Environmental Studies (department code ENS) is based on the idea that understanding the environment requires knowledge from several disciplines, including ecology, climate and weather, and oceanography. You will be exposed to the latest findings in the environmental sciences, and will learn what effects humans are having on the global environment.
