A Program in the Environment concentration requires a minimum 32 credit hours. The Curriculum Requirements includes prerequisites, as well as core concentration requirements. In addition, it features a Practical Experience requirement that sends you off campus to work or study, and a Specialization requirement that allows you to pursue an area of your choosing in depth.
The concentration culminates in an B.A. or B.S. degree (120 credit hours required), depending on the number of mathematics and science credits you take. At least 60 credit hours of mathematics and science courses are required for a Bachelor of Science degree. You may declare this concentration at any point during your time as an undergraduate, and are encouraged to do so by the end of your sophomore year. You do not need to have completed all of the prerequisites before declaring the concentration.
