You can take your passion for the planet to a variety of fields: business, communications, healthcare, government, law, travel and tourism, and many more. If your future career goals are driven by the future of the world around (and under!) us, an environmental studies minor is an ideal companion to your major area of study. You’ll explore the environment through multiple perspectives, from learning about plants and organisms living in our wetlands and waterways to how human evolution, social movements, and globalization affect where and how we live.
