Environmental Sciences

The minor in Environmental Sciences prepares students for continued graduate study in environmental science or to enter the workforce in government, industry, education, regulatory and consulting firms. Although this minor is not limited to chemistry and biology majors, they are likely the students that would take advantage of this opportunity. This minor will allow them to build on their interest in the environment without sacrificing the multitude of educational and career opportunities that their near fundamental degrees provide.
