The environmental science minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to give students, particularly those in the natural sciences, a broad understanding of the relationship of humans to the environment and the processes that occur in the natural environment. Environmental science has become an essential component of a wide variety of fields and in a variety of careers, and its importance will only increase in the future. This minor will help prepare students to respond to the demands of environmental understanding increasingly expected of 21st- century people.
