The concentration in environmental studies introduces students to the newer interdisciplinary perspectives needed to address today’s environmental problems. Short- and long-range implications of human activities are analyzed, with emphasis on the technical and scientific issues.
Requirements for the concentration are a minimum of 28 credits in a planned and approved program of advanced courses built on introductory work in biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. Typically, the 28 credits would include:
At least 16 credits must be in non-duplicative coursework with another major.
A Concentration/Minor Authorization Form with an approved set of courses must be filed at least two semesters prior to graduation. Consult the program coordinator for details about course sequences and scheduling. See course descriptions for ENV course offerings.
