Students pursuing the Environmental Policy Minor will study aspects of human interactions with the natural world. This minor will provide students with a broad overview of ecology, the environmental consequences of human action, and conceptual and practical sustainability efforts. This includes relationships between social and biological sciences and environmental law. The minor complements majors in natural science but is also suitable for non-science majors.
