Minor in Environmental Science

Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary field that examines relationships between the human and physical landscapes. It recognizes that the two landscapes are inextricably linked, and that altering one will affect the other. Topics such as global climate change, deforestation, wetland degradation, water, soil and air pollution, sustainability, economics, ethics, policies and laws, history, and literature all fall under the domain of environmental studies.
