Environmental Studies Minor

At this point in human history, we are at a critical threshold, a tipping point, with respect to the human relationship to the ecosphere which is our planetary life support system. The climate is rapidly changing, the human population continues to grow exponentially, as many as half of all species are expected to go extinct by the end of the century.

Environmental Studies provides an interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary approach to problems and their solutions that focus on the interactions between the scientific, social, political, ethical, psychological, religious and economic causes of and solutions for our environmental problems.
