Environment and Society (Minor)

About the Program

The Minor in Environment and Society offers students an opportunity for comprehensive interdisciplinary study of "human-environment" interactions, providing the skills to think holistically about environmental problems and solutions. The "Core" courses are particularly geared toward developing an understanding of the environment as socially constructed and interactive rather than as an objective reality.
