The environmental sciences minor offers students exposure to the breadth of environmental issues. Students may emphasize the natural/physical sciences, the social sciences and humanities or structure their own mixed emphasis.
Choose two lecture/laboratory courses (see Note 2):
All work submitted for an environmental sciences minor must have a grade of C (2.0) or above.
The lecture/laboratory sequence can be part of the requirements for the major, but not in the student’s major department (i.e., a biology major cannot use the general biology sequence, but could use the general chemistry sequence, which is also required for the biology major).
Students must take a minimum of 9 hours of the upper-division courses at the Downtown Campus.
If the student plans to go on to the MS in environmental sciences program, he/she should choose courses other than CHEM 4700. This is a core course in the MS in environmental sciences program.
Many of the upper-division courses have prerequisites; the student must check the catalog for prerequisite requirements for these courses.
The four upper-division elective courses for the environmental sciences minor cannot be from the student’s major discipline, even if the particular course is not counted toward the major.
