Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences


Minor in Environmental Studies:

Available to all SCU undergraduates, the minor consists of courses in specific areas of environmental studies: scientific foundations, methods, ethical dimensions, and political and legal issues.

Students who declared the Environmental Studies minor prior to September 1, 2012 automatically fall under the old requirements. This earlier version of the minor required ECON 1 and ECON 111. If you wish to switch to the new version of the minor, please contact the department chair.

Incoming freshmen, incoming transfer students, and continuing students who declare their Environmental Studies minor after September 1, 2012 automatically fall under the new requirements. This version of the minor requires the same number of courses but is more flexible and does not specifically require ECON 1 and ECON 111.
