Minor in the Environment, Sustainability or Food Systems

Program in the Environment offers three minors that allow students to acquire some measure of environmental literacy and prepare for careers with an environmental dimension without committing to a full-fledged degree program. These minors expose students to various disciplinary approaches to environmental issues and problems. It also provides opportunities for field-based experience or for the acquisition of analytical skills useful in solving environmental problems. At least one course in the minor, and in some cases more, will demonstrate the importance of interdisciplinarity in addressing environmental questions.

There are no prerequisites, although students electing the minor will need to take the prerequisites for some upper level courses, particularly in the sciences. Students must declare a major before declaring the PitE minor.
