All students are required to take BIOL 225 Environmental Science (4) . All students will be required to complete an Experiential Component (i.e., research project, internship, or independent study), which will be planned in consultation with the Environmental Studies Program director. No more than three courses can count toward both major and minor requirements.
Special courses of study may be designed in consultation with the director. For example, students in the Environmental Policy and Values Focus may be allowed to count an approved science course toward the minor. Students may also request that the director approve credit toward the minor for courses not currently listed under environmental studies. To be considered, such requests must have prior approval from the course instructor and document that the student's work will include significant elements of environmental studies.
The science department also administers a custom-designed environmental studies major under the University's interdisciplinary major program described in the Environmental Science, B.S. Students interested in this major should contact the department chair as soon as possible.
