The Environmental Studies minor focuses on the interface between humans and their environment. Environmental issues are typically complex and multi-faceted, requiring an understanding of the natural sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities - thereby emphasizing a true liberal arts education. This minor offers students an approach to studying one of the most important issues of our time by emphasizing the inherently multidisciplinary nature of environmental issues.
