Environment and Sustainability Minor

The Environment & Sustainability Certificate (ENSC) is a 17 credit hour, multi-disciplinary program open to all undergraduate majors in good standing.

From accountants to zoologists, and all majors in between, this certificate is designed to enhance your understanding of the complex environmental challenges humanity faces in the 21st century. It will also give you an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in an environmental area of interest to you. You will study the technical aspects of issues such as climate change and energy, and learn how our values, beliefs, and governmental policies affect how these issues are addressed. You will also learn about sustainable practices and lifestyle choices that can reduce your ecological footprint. Two courses are required of all students: Introduction to Environmental Science (ENS 2103) and Environmental Science Practicum (ENS 4102), leaving 12 hours for the student to select from three broad categories: Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science & Engineering.
